ACLU of New Jersey Executive Director Amol Sinha today released the following statement on the nomination of Mr. Michael Noriega to the Supreme Court of New Jersey: 

"The New Jersey Supreme Court hears cases that impact all New Jerseyans, especially the least powerful among us. If confirmed, we look forward to arguing before Mr. Noriega and the rest of the Supreme Court to continue that vital work. Mr. Noriega's experience as both a public defender – the first in the long and distinguished history of the New Jersey Supreme Court – and someone who has represented people in immigration proceedings, will bring important perspectives to the Court and should serve our state well as the Court seeks to promote justice and individual liberty for all New Jerseyans."
