Judge Wright Dies
Lingtime Middlesex County Municipal Court Judge Rinald Wright died in the Las Vegas area from cardiac arrest.
Wright was also the Chief Judge in North Brunswick, and also ran courtrooms in Bound Brook and Franklin Township. During the 1970’s and 1980’s he served as a municipal prosecutor in New Brunswick.
Wright grew up in New Brunswick, graduating from New Brunswick High School in 1965, and from Waynesburg State University in Pennsylvania four years later.
He studied law at Rutgers-Newark and ended up working at the Middlesex County Legal Services Corporation, focusing on law reform and bankruptcy work.
In September 1998, Wright was appointed to the bench in New Brunswick, and by January 2000, North Brunswick hired him as that town’s Chief Judge as well. He retired from four different municipal judgeships in January 2014.
