The New Jersey Supreme Court has held that the petition to recall United States Senator Robert Menendez is unconstitutional. The court reversed the judgment of the Appellate Division and vacated an order to the Secretary of State.
Two justices dissented, "expressing the view that because there is no present needto reach the constitutional question urged upon the Court and, in any event, this appeal raises nothing unconstitutional about New Jersey's recall election provisions, the recall process should go forward."
