In a development foreshadowed by yesterday’s issuance of the 2019-2020 General Assignment Order, the Supreme Court today published two orders dated July 8 that appoint Judges Ronald Susswein and Catherine Enright to the Appellate Division, effective as of August 1, 2019.
Judge Susswein was appointed to the bench in Mercer County by Governor Christie in 2016. He sat in the Family, Criminal, and Civil Divisions there. He is a graduate of American University and Georgetown University Law School. He has had a swift rise to the Appellate Division, not having yet reached the point of obtaining tenure. Before taking the bench, Judge Susswein was a longtime Deputy Attorney General and Assistant Attorney General in the New Jersey Division of Criminal Justice. He was also an Assistant County Prosecutor in Union County and an Assistant Counsel in the Office of the Governor.
Judge Enright was appointed to the Morris County Superior Court in 2009 by Governor Corzine after many years of private practice. Much of her practice dealt with family law. A graduate of Seton Hall University and Villanova University Law School, she has sat in the Family and Criminal Divisions. She has served as Presiding Judge of the Family Part in the Morris/Sussex vicinage since 2012. Judge Enright received tenure in 2016.
Welcome, Judges Susswein and Enright!
