Gov. Christie nominates 9/11 attorney Sohail Mohammed for Superior Court judgeship

gavelgold082409_optGov. Chris Christie's office Thursday announced the governor has filed nominations for judgeships and other state and county positions the he originally nominated in 2010 but were not confirmed by the Senate during the year-long session.

The governor also filed notices of intent to nominate two Superior Court judges, which would be subject to the consent of the state Senate.

Noteworthy is the nomination of Sohail Mohammed of Clifton to a Superior Court judgeship in Passaic County. Mohammed was counsel to many detainees picked up by federal authorities in the aftermath of 9/11 terrorist attacks. Mohammed gained the respect of authorities for trying to improve communications between them and the Muslim community after Sept. 11, 2001.
