Chief Justice, Stuart Rabner announced today that Superior Court Judge Catherine I. Enright will be temporarily appointed to the Appellate Division.
The Appellate Division, which is New Jersey’s intermediate court, appeals from decisions of the trial courts, the Tax Court and state administration agencies. The 32 judges who are assigned to the Appellate Division generally decide between 6,000 and 6,600 appeals and about 9,500 motions annually.
Judge Enright is no stranger to the Appellate Division, as she had been previously assigned to a seat back on April 15th and finished the term on June 23rd.
Prior to her Appellate Division assignment, she sat in the family part and the criminal part in the Morris/Sussex Vicinage. Judge Enright had served as the presiding judge of the family part in the Morris/Sussex Vicinage since 2012, and was president of the New Jersey Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges. She is a member of the Supreme Court Committee on Minority Concerns and was a member of the Supreme Court Committee on Juvenile Justice and the Family, the Subcommittee on Dissolution, the Supreme Court Ad Hoc Committee on the Arbitration of Family Matters and the Supreme Court Family Practice Committee.
After graduating from both Seton Hall University and Villanova University of Law, Enright began her journey as a partner at the law firm of Simon & Enright in Morris Plains, New Jersey where she primarily practiced family law for 24 years. Judge Enright was appointed to the Superior Court by Governor Jon Corzine in 2009 and had earned tenure back in 2016.
“It has been a privilege to work with the talented judges and staff of the Morris/Sussex Vicinage,” Judge Enright said. “I look forward to serving the residents of New Jersey in The Appellate Division and I am grateful to Chief Justice Rabner for this opportunity.”
