Senate judiciary moves on Christie nominations

TRENTON – If at first you don’t succeed…

The Senate Judiciary Committee signed off on Gov. Chris Christie’s tax court judge nomination Monday following little discussion.

Kathi Fiamingo, who is soon to be the former mayor of Kenilworth, cleared the committee with ease as part of nearly a half dozen gubernatorial appointments voted on by the committee. Fiamingo was previously nominated to serve as a Superior Court judge but had her nomination held up along with other stalled judicial nominations.

Fiamingo is the sister of outspoken gun rights advocate Frank Fiamingo.

Frank Fiamingo, the president of the New Jersey Second Amendment Society, has been a critic of Democratic lawmakers spearheading gun reform legislation in the Garden State.

The committee also approved Joan Bedrin Murray to be an administrative law judge, Sarah Crowley to be an administrative law judge, Michael Luther to be a workers’ compensation judge and Dawn Shanahan to be a workers’ compensation judge.
