Andrew L. Schlafly
Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ), the target of a recall committee that last month won a decision to allow them to begin gathering recall petition signatures, has now decided to appeal the decision to the New Jersey Supreme Court, the recall committee's legal spokesman confirmed today.

Richard T. Luzzi, who has been co-counsel of the Committee to Recall Robert Menendez from the Office of United States Senator since its legal battles with the State of New Jersey began last December, confirmed the appeal to this Examiner at 2:34 p.m. today. According to Luzzi, the firm of Genova Burns, lawyers for Senator Menendez, filed a formal Notice of Appeal and Petition for Certification to the New Jersey Supreme Court. Luzzi received the notice this afternoon. He declined further comment, except to say that he had notified the Committee's lead counsel, Andrew L. Schlafly.
