N.J. Senate Passes a Resolution Urging JUSTICE RIVERA-SOTO to Resign

N.J. Law Journal reports today:

The state Senate passed a nonbinding resolution on Thursday calling for the resignation of Justice Roberto Rivera-Soto, who has declared his intention to abstain from certain Supreme Court decisions on constitutional grounds. The resolution passed by the minimum 21 votes, all from Democrats. “It is the sense of the Senate that the actions of Justice Roberto Rivera-Soto are prejudicial to the administration of justice and constitute a serious violation of the public trust,” says SR-105, sponsored by Sen. Nia Gill, D-Essex. The resolution also says it is “the sense of the Senate that the actions of Justice Rivera-Soto may constitute grounds for impeachment for misdemeanor committed during his continuance in office.”
