Chief Justice Rabner was nominated to the Supreme Court by Governor Jon S. Corzine and was sworn in on June 29, 2007.  He was nominated for tenure by Governor Chris Christie and was sworn in on June 20, 2014.

After beginning his career as an assistant U.S. attorney, Chief Justice Rabner worked in a number of positions including first assistant U.S. attorney and chief of the terrorism unit.  He was chief of the office's criminal division when he was named chief counsel to Governor Corzine in January 2006.  He was named New Jersey attorney general in September 2006 and served in that position until his nomination to the Court.

Chief Justice Rabner is a member of the Board of Directors of the Institute of Judicial Administration at New York University School of Law, and a member of the American Law Institute.  He served as a member of the Board of Directors of the Conference of Chief Justices from 2010 to 2012.

Below is a temporary biography of New Jersey Supreme Court Chief Justice Stuart Rabner. It is taken from the judiciary website. From personal experience after having argued several cases before Chief Justice Albin, I can tell you that, in my opinion, he is very knowledgable of the law and the case being argued, really really nice, has a way of making lawyers comfortable in "his" house (he is the Chief Justice, after all), and a great asset to our Supreme Court even though I usually disagree with his opinions. If I am arguing a case before the Supreme Court of New Jersey on a criminal issue, I try to know who the issue is handled by federal courts too because Chief Justice Rabner came to our bench from the United States Attorneys' Office.
