N.J. Constitutional Convention: Vol. 4, Page 339
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?
VICE-CHAIRMAN: Thank you very much, Dean Ormsby.
(The session adjourned at 4:00 P. M.)
