The New Jersey Supreme Court on Friday issued a stern rebuke to one of its members for using the prestige of office to advance a personal interest. The court censured Justice Roberto Rivera-Soto for how he dealt with police, prosecutors and court officials over a complaint that his son was being bullied by a high school football teammate. The court said that Rivera-Soto engaged in a course of action that led to "an appearance of impropriety."
