The end of the season means the beginning of a New Year

New Judicial Assignments Mean Less Wardrobe Choices

Labor Day marks the end of the summer season. It signals the return of crossing guards and school buses and most significantly our children's  return to the classroom! For me, Labor Day marks some other significant events. Five or six years ago I began to wear a seersucker suit. I made the decision to buy one after attending numerous American Bar Association conferences in August with southern lawyers who regularly wore this lightweight suit complete with white bucks.  the suit is very traditional for southern lawyers but is not exactly commonplace for a Yankee lawyer from New Jersey. Once I stated to wear this suit in New Jersey, I often drew comments; some positive and some not so positive. One client suggested to me she was not sure whether I was her lawyer or I was trying to sell ice cream.  Of the people who are willing to share their opinions about the suit most are positive.  Despite the occasional not so positive comment, I still wear the suit.  I like wearing a seersucker suit not just for the look, but for the comfort especially in the “dog days” of summer. One of the limitations of the seersucker suit is the relatively short season to where it. It is only appropriate to wear the suit between Memorial Day and Labor Day. I know that Labor Day is not automatically end the warm weather and high humidity. As tempted as I might be on those hot sweaty days in September I won't wear the seersucker suit because I know it's a fashion faux pas. So yesterday as Labor Day 2012 became part of history I got my seersucker suit together to send it to the dry cleaner.  This suit will have to hang in my closet covered in plastic cellophane until the end of May 2013. This year, Labor Day signifies the end of seersucker suit season but it also brings in the beginning of the 2012-2013 judicial year.  For those who work in the judiciary, “Happy New Year”!   The new year for the judiciary means new judicial assignments across the state. In July we highlighted the changing judicial assignments for the Camden County judiciary. A complete listing of the judicial assignments for each vicinage is listed below.   Vicinage No. 1         Atlantic/Cape May Vicinage No. 2         Bergen Vicinage No. 3         Burlington Vicinage No. 4         Camden Vicinage No. 5          Essex Vicinage No. 6          Hudson Vicinage No. 7          Mercer Vicinage No. 8          Middlesex Vicinage No. 9         Monmouth Vicinage No. 10       Morris/Sussex Vicinage No. 11       Passaic Vicinage No. 12       Union Vicinage No. 13       Somerset/Hunterdon/Warren Vicinage No. 14       Ocean Vicinage No. 15       Cumberland/Gloucester/Salem
