MORRISTOWN -- The Families Civil Liberties Union is reportedly filing a complaint against a Superior Court judge who recently left the bench when his term expired without reappointment.
The group is alleging that Philip Maenza, formerly a family court judge in Morris County, made false statements under oath and improperly discussed matters before the court in his testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee, according to a report in Observer/New Jersey Politics.
The complaint is being filed with the New Jersey Supreme Court Advisory Committee on Judicial Conduct.
The New Jersey Law Journal reported in December the committee recommended tenure to 14 judges but declined to hold a vote on Maenza after hearing testimony from several who appeared before him in family court.
Maenza left the bench Jan. 19, said Pete McAleer, spokesman for New Jersey Courts.
