Christie brushes off criticism for re-nominating Rabner as NJ Supreme Court chief justice | NJ.com:
"The New Jersey Bar Association called the news a victory for judicial independence. “We applaud Governor Christie and Senate President Sweeney in putting aside ideological differences and politics to preserve the independence of the Judiciary,”, immediate past president Ralph Lamparello, said in a statement. But the combative Christie didn't return Lamparello's praise. “This judicial independence thing is a crock. It’s a complete crock. And the Bar Association knows it. This is the way they’ve decided to be relevant,” Christie said. “Out of all the factors I considered in whether to re-nominate the chief justice, the opinion of Ralph Lamparello and the Bar Association didn’t make the list .”"
