There’s a new judge in town. Longtime Toms River Municipal Court Judge James A. Liguori, who served on the bench for 37 years, retired last week. Ligouri also served as the presiding municipal court judge for Ocean County.

In Toms River municipal court, he will be replaced by Judge James J. Gluck. Gluck presented his colleague with a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Ocean County Judge’s Association last week after his final court session.

The township council formally appointed Gluck to the position on Tuesday.
