President Donald J. Trump today announced the nomination of Paul B. Matey of Roseland, NJ to the Third Circuit Court of Appeals.
A 2001 graduate of Seton Hall Law School, Matey was former Governor Chris Christie’s Deputy Chief Counsel and served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney during Christie’s tenure as the chief federal prosecutor in New Jersey. He is currently the Sr. Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary of University Hospital in Newark.
Prior to entering Seton Hall Law, Matey worked in marketing for the comic-book division of Marvel Entertainment, according to his LinkedIn profile.
“Paul is a superb nomination to one of the most respected courts in the country,” said Seton Hall Law Dean Kathleen M. Boozang in a press release. Boozang noted that Matey was Editor-in-Chief of the Law Review and graduated summa cum laude. “We are thrilled to have Seton Hall Law represented at this level in the federal judiciary. Given his immense talents and the breath of his legal experience, there is no question but that he will serve with distinction.”
Matey is one of 20 federal judicial nominees that President Trump announced today.
