Justice Rivera-Soto Misconduct Merits Censure: ACJC

Earlier this afternoon, the Advisory Committee on Judicial Conduct released a presentment in the judicial disciplinary case involving Justice Rivera-Soto. The Committee found that the Justice had violated several canons of the Code of Judicial Conduct and recommended that he be subject to a censure by the Supreme Court. A censure is the highest level of judicial discipline that the Court will impose that does not involve a suspension from judicial duties or removal from judicial office.

The New Jersey Supreme Court will consider the recommended factual findings and proposed quantum of discipline from the ACJC. Judicial discipline may only be imposed by the Court.
