Confirmed: Haitian American To Serve on New Jersey’s Highest Court

By Sam Bojarski

Fabiana Pierre-Louis, the daughter of Haitian immigrants, will soon take her seat as the first Black woman to serve on the New Jersey Supreme Court. 

The Democrat-led state Senate voted 39-0 to confirm Pierre-Louis, after the Judiciary Committee unanimously approved her nomination on Aug. 24. Pierre-Louis, 39, will replace retiring Supreme Court Justice Walter Timpone and could serve for as long as 30 years on the seven-member body.

Judicial nominees typically refrain from comment until after they are sworn in, but in a June interview with The Haitian Times, Pierre-Louis spoke about her nomination to the court.
