Outgoing N.J. Attorney General will work for the Port Authority until becoming judge

    N.J. Gov. Chris Christie has named the replacement for outgoing state Attorney General Paula Dow, and in the announcement, detailed Dow’s post-departure work.

    Dow said last month that she would step down at the end of the year, and sources talked anonymously about her desire to pursue judgeship.
    NJ.com reports Christie’s chief counsel, Jeff Chiesa, will take Dow’s place, and Dow will, in fact, be nominated for judgeship.

    But before she can take on a role at the state Superior Court, Dow will serve as deputy general counsel for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.
