BREAKING: New Jersey Senate Confirms Fabiana Pierre-Louis As Supreme Court Justice

The New Jersey Senate voted 39-0 a short time ago to confirm Fabiana Pierre-Louis, 39, to the state’s Supreme Court. 

Pierre-Louis, the daughter of  Haitian immigrants, will become the first black woman to serve on the New Jersey Supreme Court, and would be able to serve on the court from 30 years before reaching the mandatory retirement age of 70.

Pierre-Louis was born in Brooklyn, raised in Irvington, New Jersey, and attended law school at Rutgers. She went on to clerk for Justice John Wallace, the last black justice who served on the New Jersey Supreme Court, became a federal prosecutor, and is now a partner at the law firm Montgomery, McCracken, Walker, & Rhoads LLP.

She was nominated to sit on the Supreme Court by Governor Phil Murphy on June 5th.
