Ocean County Prosecutor Expected to be Nominated as Superior Court Judge

Ocean County Prosecutor Marlene Lynch Ford, a former judge, may soon be nominated as a Superior Court judge. According to the State’s website, a notice of intent was filed to nominate Ford for the position.

As earlier reported, Ford’s appointment as Ocean County Prosecutor expired in 2012, but she continues to serve in the capacity until a replacement is named. She was been appointed as prosecutor by Governor Corzine in June 2007.

Prosecutor Ford practiced law in Jackson Township and Point Pleasant Beach. She also was elected by voters in the 10th Legislative District to two terms in the New Jersey General Assembly (1984-1986; 1990-1992). In 1992, Prosecutor Ford was nominated by Governor James Florio to be a Superior Court Judge. She served in the family division for four years, and for ten years in the civil division. In 2006 she was appointed by Chief Justice Zazzali to be Presiding Judge of the Family Division. TLS.
