Gov. Phil Murphy has issued an executive order outlining his plans to issue pardons and commutations, including establishing a Clemency Advisory Board led by a King & Spalding attorney, and including members of the legal community and a Rutgers law professor, among others.

Murphy released his plan on June 19 with Executive Order No. 362, which set forth certain categories of pending or future clemency applications that will receive expedited review during his administration, which ends in 2026.
