Time out has been called on the judicial career of Rosemarie Ruggiero Williams, whose initial seven-year term as a New Jersey Superior Court judge expired. Rather than push for lifetime tenure, New Jersey Gov. Christine Todd Whitman will nominate Williams today for seven more years. “We just weren’t comfortable with setting lifetime tenure at this point,” says Whitman’s press secretary Peter McDonough. However, in a January 1999 survey, lawyers ranked Williams 337th out of 348 state judges in demeanor and 339th out of 348 in overall competence.
