Statement from Governor Murphy on Confirmation of U.S. District Court Judges Michael Farbiarz and Robert Kirsch


“Today’s confirmation of Michael Farbiarz and Robert Kirsch elevates two outstanding and highly qualified nominees to our judiciary. Throughout both of their careers, each has demonstrated a commitment to public service, a dedicated work ethic, and a record of excellence in the legal profession. I am certain both individuals will continue their records of distinguished service as federal judges.

"I want to thank President Biden for their nominations and recognize Senators Menendez and Booker both for their role in the selection process and for their persistence and dedication in working to fill eight judicial vacancies over the past two years. I look forward to the contributions of these newly confirmed judges as they join New Jersey’s federal bench.”
