As of the proposal of these amendments, the New Jersey Supreme Court consisted of seven justices, one of which was the court's Chief Justice. Justices of the court were nominated by the governor. One week after the public notice issued by the governor, the nominees were required to pass the "advice and consent" of the senate. After seven years of service, the governor could then then determine whether to tenure the justice.

- See also: Amending the New Jersey Constitution
At the time in New Jersey, proposed constitutional amendments had two ways of achieving ballot access. The New Jersey Legislature could either qualify it with supermajority approval of 60 percent in one legislative session or with simple majorities in two successive sessions. This measure did not receive the necessary supermajority required for a 2014 ballot placement. SCR 15 was introduced on January 14, 2014, and was referred to the Judiciary Committee. ACR 47 was introduced on January 16, 2014, and was referred to the Judiciary Committee.
