TRENTON - Governor Phil Murphy today released the following statement following the confirmation by the U.S. Senate of Christine O’Hearn to the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey by a vote of 53-44.
“I congratulate Judge O’Hearn on this tremendous accomplishment and I know that she will serve the people of New Jersey with honor and distinction,” said Governor Murphy. “Judge O’Hearn has earned a reputation throughout the New Jersey legal community as a brilliant and respected attorney. Our District Court is fortunate to have her joining the bench.
This successful confirmation is a significant achievement for President Biden, and one that could not have happened without the support and expertise of Senators Menendez and Booker. I am thrilled that we continue to see progress in filling New Jersey's federal judicial vacancies.”
