The Camden-based "Women 2001" civic organization recently honored three law professionals with connections to the city: Retired N.J. Supreme Court Judge John E. Wallace, Jr.; California state Judge Elizabeth A. Riggs; and international legal expert Patricia Viseur Sellers.
Several hundred people attended the organization's annual jazz brunch at Auletto Caterers in Deptford. The event raises money for scholarships.
Annette Braxton, the retired principal of Cramer School in East Camden, represented her sister, Judge Riggs. The two are the daughters of the late Jerrothia "Mom" Riggs, who served on the city school board for nearly three decades.
Also on hand was a trio of mayors: Camden's Dana L. Redd; her predecessor, Gwendolyn A. Faison; and Washington Township's Barbara Wallace, who is married to Judge Wallace.
