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.
“I wish Judge Ligouri well, and I know Judge Gluck will do a good job,” said Councilwoman Maria Maruca.
According to township officials, Ligouri earned $130,655 in the position. Gluck will earn $105,000.
