Roberto Rivera-Soto can’t leave fast enough. despite a decision last month to finish serving on the New Jersey Supreme Court when his term runs out in September, the state Senate wants him gone now, as NJ.com reports.
The Senate passed a resolution 21-3 saying Rivera-Soto should resign if the Assembly doesn’t seek impeachment. After saying he’d abstain from votes out of protest to Gov. Chris Christie’s appointment of a temporary justice last spring.
Last month, Rivera-Soto said he’d vote on Supreme Court cases provided temporary justice Edwin Stern’s vote wasn’t a deciding factor.
