TRENTON - Despite a few questions about her role in the firing of a prosecutor, Gov. Christie's former attorney general, Paula Dow, cruised through her judicial confirmation Thursday in the New Jersey Senate.
Dow, who said she recently moved from Essex County to Willingboro, will serve on Superior Court in Burlington County. The Senate voted to confirm her by 38-0 with two abstentions.
Dow originally was nominated by Christie to serve in Essex County, but an apparent dispute between Christie and senators there held up her hearing. She then moved to Willingboro, which upset some attorneys in Burlington County, who had hoped a local lawyer would fill one of the two vacant seats on that court.
