$4.2 Million settlement of a class action against American Traffic Systems, Inc. and 18 New Jersey municipalities alleging a failure to comply with New Jersey laws governing red light cameras. (Bryan H. Mintz, with co-counsel, District of New Jersey, 2013).
This week, in Maida v. Kuskin, the New Jersey Supreme Court addressed an important aspect of civil reservations.
The New Jersey Supreme Court decided last week in the case of Renner v. AT&T that a Workers’ Compensation claimant is not entitled to compensation for a cardiovascular injury, disease or death, unless the claimant can show that the cardiovascular injury resulted from a work effort or strain involving a substantial condition or event. This case has broad ramifications for New Jersey workers who suffer injuries such as heart attacks or pulmonary embolisms at work and seek workers’ compensation benefits for those injuries.
In the recent case of Hersh v. County of Morris, the New Jersey Supreme Court considered the issues of whether a plaintiff who was injured while crossing a public street as she walked from a private garage, where she had employer-paid parking, to her office a few blocks away was entitled to workers’ compensation benefits under the Workers’ Compensation Act.
