Super. 11 (App. Div. 2020), a published decision that shut down public access to non-litigation settlement agreements that resolve a public employee's internal discipline.
CJ Griffin of Pashman Stein Walder Hayden filed the successful petition for certification. We will blog soon with more details about the case and the issues before the Supreme Court.
