Statement from Governor Murphy on Bipartisan Confirmation of U.S. District Court Judge Evelyn Padin


“New Jersey’s federal judicial bench got stronger and more diverse with today’s bipartisan confirmation of Evelyn Padin to the U.S. District Court. Judge Padin brings to our judiciary not only exemplary credentials in the law, but through her prior career as a social worker, an important focus on justice for the underrepresented. I congratulate Judge Padin on this historic confirmation. I further congratulate President Biden and Senators Menendez and Booker for their support of Judge Padin’s successful nomination.”
