February 17, 2015 – In The News

Kenneth A. Rosenberg was quoted in the Law360 article "Top Judge Leaves NJ's Busiest Court in Calmer Waters." Full text can be found in the February 17, 2015, issue, but a synopsis is below.

Essex County Superior Assignment Judge Patricia K. Costello will retire next month, leaving New Jersey’s largest and busiest court.

Judge Costello will be remembered as a highly skilled jurist who ran the complex court system in an efficient and dependable manner, said Essex County Bar Association President Kenneth Rosenberg.

“She did a great job, hands down,” Rosenberg said.

The remaining vacancies will be the biggest challenge for the vicinage’s next assignment judge, according to Rosenberg, who noted that while there are rumblings of additional nominees, he has seen past signs of progress fade after surfacing.
