Bruce Harris Nominated To New Jersey Supreme Court

January 23, 2012

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has nominated Bruce Harris, elected mayor of Chatham Borough in November, to serve on the New Jersey Supreme Court.

Harris “graduated magna cum laude from Amherst College, and with honors from Boston University Graduate School of Management. He earned a law degree from Yale. In addition to serving as mayor of Chatham, he most recently worked at the law firm of Greenberg Traurig and previously at Riker, Danzi, Scherer, Hyland and Perretti.

“Steve Goldstein, the chief executive of Garden State Equality, a gay rights organization, said he was stunned when Christie called to tell him about the imminent nomination of Harris, 60, a graduate of Yale Law School.

“As I told the governor right then and there, you could have picked me up off the floor,” Goldstein said.
