McGuckin and Dasti Head to New Jersey Supreme Court

Gregory P. McGuckin and Christopher J. Dasti are going to the New Jersey Supreme Court.  Mr. McGuckin and Mr. Dasti filed a Petition for Certification asking the Court to hear an appeal from the Appellate Division of a case involving the Firm’s client, Ocean Township (Waretown).  The case involves a zoning issue related to the township.  The High Court granted the Petition for Certification and will hear the case next week.

As the highest appellate court, the Supreme Court reviews cases from the lower courts.  Certification is granted only to a small percentage of cases and generally only if the appeal presents a question of general public importance which has not been but should be settled by the Supreme Court.
