So 25 minutes after I posted the post below about Balkin’s book (saying “nothing could make me happier”), the Supreme Court of New Jersey decided the appeal in the case I argued (more than 18 months ago). It is here. My client won. Ok, you’re right, NJ SCt. I’m happier.
Update: The New Jersey Supreme Court’s decision (5-1) is really extraordinary. It has again placed New Jersey in the lead for protecting its citizens (and especially its children). The law that granted immunity to charities for “negligence” has been interpreted to mean just “negligence.” You’d think that wouldn’t take years to resolve, but having it resolved is fantastically good news — far more than even we had asked for.
