Abstract:     
In this article, I explore the state law provisions for temporary assignments to the Supreme Court of New Jersey, a mechanism that has been suggested as a way to avoid or break ties, and argue that, as a matter of state constitutional law, such assignments should be made only when necessary to achieve the required quorum of five. This exploration leads to a broader conclusion that the New Jersey Constitution prohibits the recall and temporary assignment to any court of retired justices and judges who have reached the mandatory retirement age of seventy.
