After more than a year the appeal of the judgement in favor of Readington Township has been heard in oourt. The three judge panel reviewed the case as presented at the original trial where the Solberg’s attorney argued the taking was “pretextual”.
One judge actually asked, “Let me understand. Don’t preservations normally result because people want to stop development? So why is the current case pretextual?”
The written judgement of the court is expected in four to six weeks and is expected to be posted at www.judiciary.state.nj.us.
