Judge Mawla, Matheny Case Judge, is Appointed to the Appellate Division


TRENTON NJ - Hon. Hany Mawla will be temporarily assigned to the Appellate Division effective August 1, 2017, Chief Justice Stuart Rabner announced today.

Judge Mawla has served as a Judge of the Superior Court in the Somerset/Hunterdon/Warren vicinage since he was appointed to the bench in January 2010.  Before his appointment to the Appellate Division, Judge Mawla served as the Presiding Judge of the Family Part for the vicinage.

When he was assigned to the Civil Division in Somerset County, Judge Mawla decided a major portion of the Matheny v Borough of Peapack and Gladstone litigation.  On May 12, 2014, Judge Mawla granted the Borough of Peapack and Gladstone's motion for summary judgment, dismissing Matheny's discrimination claims against the borough with prejudice.  The Appellate Division later upheld Judge Mawla's decision.

I have always admired the judges who have served and continue to serve in the Appellate Division and I hope to add to the court's already stellar reputation. I hold a special affection for the hard working judges and staff of the Somerset/Hunterdon/Warren vicinage as well as the attorneys of the bar. I would not have this opportunity without their kindness and friendship,” Judge Mawla said.
