    Reserve Your Seat for Surpeme Court Argument on FSHC Motion to Enforce Litigants’ Rights

    Posted by Laura Denker

    On January 6, 2015, at 10 a.m., the New Jersey Supreme Court will hear Fair Share Housing Center’s (FSHC) motion to enforce litigants’ rights, which was filed after the Christie Administration and the Council on Affordable Housing (COAH) failed to meet an October 22 deadline for adopting new rules under the Fair Housing Act. You can read about our motion here. Due to the likely large interest in the case, the New Jersey Supreme Court is maintaining a list of people who have requested a seat in the courtroom. To reserve a seat, please call the Court at 609-984-7791 and provide your name.

    Please also let us know if you plan to attend by contacting Rev. Eric Dobson at ericdobson@fairsharehousing.org(more)
