Christie set to nominate Hanna to Superior Court, AP reports

Gov. Chris Christie is poised to give up the battle to get at least one of his Supreme Court nominees to the bench, according to published reports.

The governor filed a notice of intent to nominate Robert Hanna as a lower court judge, according to the Associated Press. Hanna is one of two Christie nominees to the state’s high court who Democratic lawmakers have refused to give a confirmation hearing.

The wire reported Christie’s office took steps to nominate Hanna as a Superior Court judge.
