With Judge Alvarez Retiring and Returning on Recall, Judge Haas Becomes Presiding Judge of the Appellate Division’s Part D

Chief Justice Rabner issued two orders that affect Part D of the Appellate Division. One of those orders notes that Judge Alvarez is to retire on pension on March 27, 2022, and states that she is being recalled for temporary service through August 31, 2022. During that period, Judge Alvarez will be assigned to Part D “and will continue to serve as presiding judge of In the Matter of Theresa E. Mullen, a Judge of the Superior Court of the State of New Jersey Supreme Court of New Jersey, Docket No. 085531, pursuant to the Court’s Panel Assignment Order of September 29, 2021.”

With the retirement of Judge Alvarez, Chief Justice Rabner’s other order designates Judge Haas, currently a member of Part D, as Presiding Judge of that Part effective on March 27. Congratulations to Judge Haas!
