    Alphabet Soup - DUI, PCR, AOM and RFQ's

    Alphabet Soup - DUI, PCR, AOM and RFQ's

    Alphabet Soup Show Notes
    I recently saw (through a zoom arbitration) Judge Mary Catherine Cuff - Retired PJAD who served “temporarily” on the NJ Supreme Court from 2012 - 2016 until the appointment of Justice Walter Timpone. The Arb was a pleasure and the Judge issued a lovely hand-written Arb Award. The interaction prompted the ringing of the bell in the Trenton clocktower - the NJ Supreme Court is down (2) Justices and Justice Albin is a mere (2) months from retirement. BRRRRRING!!
    State v. Konecny -  DUI, PCR, DWS - driving while suspended. The NJ Supreme Court did note extend Laurick relief to multiple DUI offenders who were represented by counsel. Laurick is NOT traditional PCR - it only addresses uncounseled defendants - not defendants who allege ineffective assistance of counsel in the context of PCR.
    Haviland v. Lourdes Medical Center of Burlington Co. - AOM - Affidavit of Merit is not required where plaintiff asserts vicarious liability against a licensed actor if the tortfeasor is an unlicensed person.
    Dobco, Inc. v. Bergen County Improvement Authority - A bidder cannot complain that a bid process is illegal while participating as a bidder for a public contract. A resident officer of a bidder may seek injunctive relief, outside of the company’s claims, but must file a certification indicating that the individual is not taking direction from the bidder and personally paying legal fees without reimbursement.
