Appellate Division Retirements (All Non-Mandatory) Are in the Offing

At last night’s NJSBA Appellate Practice Committee meeting, it was announced that three judges of the Appellate Division will be retiring shortly.  They are Judges Carroll, Leone, and Manahan.  Each of those judges are some years short of age 70, so that all of these retirements are non-mandatory.  All three of these judges have served ably (I have appeared before two of them and can speak with personal knowledge in that regard), and will be missed.
