Only a week after leaving his post on the New Jersey Supreme Court, former justice Roberto Rivera-Soto has started a new job. And his new employer likes his “uncommonly rich breadth of experience.”
The Associated Press reports Rivera-Soto is going the same route Ed Rendell did when Rendell left the Pennsylvania governor’s office: joining Ballard Spahr.
Rendell returned to the Philadelphia law firm earlier this year, and Rivera-Soto is now a litigation partner at the Cherry Hill office. The 57-year-old ended his seven-year run with the court after being censured and then sitting out on decisions in objection to the presence of a temporary judge.
