Gov. Chris Christie has officially pulled Assemblyman Michael Patrick Carroll from consideration for a Superior Court Judgeship.
Here is the statement from Christie Spokesman Kevin Roberts:
“The Judiciary Committee made it clear that a determination on Assemblyman Carroll’s nomination by the Bar Association was necessary to move forward with a hearing,” Roberts said. “Since it is also clear that the Bar’s determination would not be completed in time for a hearing today, and no other Judiciary Committee hearings are currently scheduled, we felt it appropriate to withdraw Mr. Carroll’s nomination at this time.”
