Supreme Court to Hear Oral Argument in COAH Matter
The New Jersey Supreme Court will hear oral argument in A-90/91/92/93/94-10 IMO Adoption of N.J.A.C. 5:96 (COAH), on Wednesday, Nov. 7 at 10 a.m. in the Supreme Court courtroom on the 8th floor of the Hughes Justice Complex, 25 Market St., Trenton. (Are these "third-round" rules adopted by the Council on Affordable Housing under the Fair Housing Act N.J.S.A. 52:27D-301 to -329.19, which establish municipalities' obligations to provide affordable housing, invalid because they include a compliance mechanism that involves use of a "growth share methodology”?)
Seating for the media is limited and will be reserved in the order requests are received. Only one seat will be reserved for each news organization. Reporters should be seated by 9:45 a.m. Unoccupied reserved seats will be given to reporters on a waiting list at 9:50 a.m. Allow time for passing through security in the Justice Complex lobby. Photo ID is required, preferably a driver’s license.
The argument also will be available live on the Judiciary website, judiciary.state.nj.us.
News organizations must make arrangements for still or video cameras in the courtroom through the Judiciary communications office, according to the Supreme Court guidelines. If demand for space is high, photographers will use a pooling arrangement. The communications office will provide further information on pooling when photographers call for reservations.
To make reservations, call the Judiciary communications office at 609-292-9580.
