Abbott Koloff North Jersey Record Published 7:32 PM EST Feb 13, 2019 New Jersey's five Catholic dioceses on Wednesday morning began releasing lists of priests who have been credibly accused of sexually abusing children. Cardinal Joseph Tobin, the Newark archbishop, announced last year that the dioceses were reviewing clergy sex abuse cases. The church, he said at the time, planned to publish the names of all priests and deacons who have been credibly accused of sexually abusing children sometime this year. In a letter to Catholics on Wednesday, the cardinal said publishing the names was part of "an effort to do what is right and just." He said the list was compiled during an "extensive review" of records dating to 1940.

No one was injured, but one of the fires was set in a dormitory that also housed a daycare where children were present. Authorities say … [Read more...] about Health issues delay trial for former student accused of setting fires at St. Catherine University
Opinion OCT. 3, 2018 Opinion The Senate Should Not Confirm Kavanaugh. Signed, 650+ Law Professors. The following letter will be presented to the United States Senate on Oct. 4. It will be updated as more signatures are received. Judicial temperament is one of the most important qualities of a judge. As the Congressional Research Service explains, a judge requires “a personality that is even-handed, unbiased, impartial, courteous yet firm, and dedicated to a process, not a result.” The concern for judicial temperament dates back to our founding; in Federalist 78, titled “Judges as Guardians of the Constitution,” Alexander Hamilton expressed the need for “the integrity and moderation of the judiciary.” We are law professors who teach, research and write about the judicial institutions of this country. Many of us appear in state and federal court, and our work means that we will continue to do so, including before the United … [Read more...] about The Senate Should Not Confirm Kavanaugh.
