The NJ Supreme Court has issued an opinion
upholding the Attorney General’s June 2020 Law Enforcement Directives (Directive 2020-5
and Directive 2020-6
) that requires public disclosure of the names of police officers who have committed serious disciplinary violations that result in the imposition of “major discipline.”

Earlier this week, the New Jersey Supreme Court issued its opinion on Shipyard Associates, LP v. City of Hoboken, a case the League participated in as amicus curiae. This case deals principally with two issues related to the Municipal Land Use Law (MLUL). The first issue addressed by the Court – when does a municipal ordinance work as a change in zoning requirements, so as to implicate the two-year protection against zoning requirement changes afforded to final approvals under N.J.S.A. 40:55D-22(a)? The second issue addressed is whether or not the MLUL exempts ordinances affecting public health and safety from its bar against retroactive application of changes in zoning requirements.
