LEGAL TEAM SUPPORTS LEAGUE EFFORTS

LEGAL ADVOCACY

This has been another busy year for the League’s legal team. The League has been involved with a number of cases dealing with municipal issues, ranging from the seizing of Affordable Housing Trust Fund moneys, to OPRA, and contract negotiations. With regards to COAH, 2013 has been a very busy year.

The League has worked hard to prevent COAH’s May 1st order from seizing any “non-committed” moneys from the Affordable Housing Trust Fund. Indeed, that order has been partially invalidated. As the New Year approaches, the League’s legal team looks forward to continuing its zealous advocacy on this matter and helping local government leaders in their course of action.

The League was also pleased to welcome Ed Purcell as the League’s new staff attorney.  Ed and the League General Counsel, William J. Kearns Esq., continued to monitor court decisions that may have had an impact on municipalities. As an example, Harvey Cedars v. Karan was a very important New Jersey Supreme Court Case the legal team reported on. Karan drastically changed the way in which condemned beach front property is valued.

This year the Staff Attorney continued to respond to legal questions and issues from municipal officials though the NJLM Consultation Service.  And he, along with the General Counsel and other members of the legal team all consulted with the Legislative Relations staff on bills introduced in the Senate and General Assembly.
