NJ high court to rule in case of retired judge

Legal News Updates Posted on

New Jersey's Supreme Court has upheld the censure of a retired Superior Court judge.

Steven Perskie was disciplined in March for not recusing himself in a timely fashion from a case involving his former campaign treasurer. A state Supreme Court committee also found Perskie was not forthcoming in his remarks to a Senate committee about the incident when he was facing re-appointment.

Today's ruling found Perskie shouldn't have rejected a request during a 2006 case that he recuse himself. He later recused himself for different reasons.

The court also found that Perskie didn't intentionally mislead the Senate committee when he answered questions about the incident.

Perskie served on the Superior Court in Atlantic County and retired in January 2010. He also served as a state legislator.
