Princeton Township resident Chief Justice Deborah Poritz has received the American Civil Liberties Union of New Jersey’s highest legal honor for rulings on reproductive freedom and equality: the Roger N. Baldwin Award. She was honored at an annual US Supreme Court briefing. “Chief Justice Poritz has demonstrated a commitment to equality through her opinions on abortion rights and same sex marriage,” said ACLU-NJ Executive Director Deborah Jacobs. “Although the ACLU has not always agreed with her positions, we recognize her thoughtful approach to constitutional rights.” Named after the founder of the ACLU, the award has been awarded to national luminaries such as Justice William Brennan, Gloria Steinem, and Cornel West, and New Jersey legal achievers such as Frank Askin, Ronald Chen, and Larry Lustberg. Ms. Poritz, nominated by former Governor Christine Todd Whitman, served as Attorney General of New Jersey from 1994 to 1996. She was appointed Chief Justice for the New Jersey Supreme Court in 1996, a position she held until retirement in 2006.


Dorothy Chu of Hopewell, Janet Pullockaran of Pennington, Raja Raunk of Lawrenceville; and Manisha Reddy of Princeton, have been selected by the Alumni Association’s Scholarship Committee to receive Medical School Scholarships at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. They were selected based on academic standing, financial need, and involvement in school and community activities.
