STATE OF NEW JERSEY CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION OF 1947
COMMITTEE ON THE JUDICIARY
Tuesday, July 8, 1947 (Afternoon session)

my friends, my clients, my everything else. It isn't worth it. A man is making a sacrifice, in my opinion, when he accepts a judicial appointment and precludes himself from that horrible thing we call money, and he becomes a public servant because of his inherent conscientious desire to serve the public. I don't think that a judgeship could compensate him for that.

VICE-CHAIRMAN: Are there any further questions?

MR. WINNE: Dean Ormsby, you thought that every litigant should have a right of appeal. We had some discussion on that a little earlier. Now if a litigant had a right of appeal once, do you still think that he should have a second right of appeal, if there were a higher court?

MR. ORMSBY: I think we can do away with multiple appeals, but I still think that appeals should be made as a matter of right, and not be subjected to any technical objections or conditions.

VICE-CHAIRMAN: Anything further, gentlemen?

(Silence)

VICE-CHAIRMAN: Thank you very much, Dean Ormsby.

(The session adjourned at 4:00 P. M.)
