An Atlantic County Superior Court judge will be elevated to the Appellate Division.
Susan F. Maven, a judge with the court’s Family Division, will take her new position effective Aug. 1, New Jersey Supreme Court Chief Justice Stuart Rabner announced Friday.
Maven was appointed to the Superior Court in 2001 by former Gov. Donald T. DiFrancesco, and also served in the Criminal Division in Cape May County between 2008 and 2010 before returning to Atlantic County.
She served a temporary assignment in the Appellate Division earlier this year.
“I appreciate the chief justice’s confidence in appointing me to the Appellate Division,” Maven said in a statement. “While I have enjoyed serving the citizens of Atlantic and Cape May County for over 10 years, I look forward to my new assignment and working in a different capacity.”
There are 32 Appellate Division judges who hear appeals from decisions of the trial courts, the Tax Court and state administrative agencies. The Appellate Division decides about 6,500 appeals and 7,500 motions each year.
