Pashman Stein Walder Hayden P.C. Named New Jersey Law Journal’s Law Firm of the Year 2023*


Jennifer Borg Mentioned in New Jersey Monitor Regarding OPRA Requests


Jennifer Borg, of counsel at Pashman Stein Walder Hayden, was mentioned in the New Jersey Monitor Commentary, “Emails show ugly, anti-press side of mayor and wannabe N.J. governor.” The Commentary discusses how the administration of Steve Fulop, the mayor of Jersey City, cut the Jersey City Times, a hyperlocal news site, from the city’s press advisories and stopped communicating with it. The Commentary notes:

How do I know this? Enter Jennifer Borg. Borg, an attorney whose family once owned the Bergen Record and a host of community newspapers across North Jersey, is a visiting lecturer at Yale University’s Media Freedom and Information Access Clinic. That’s where lawyers like Borg can give law students real-world legal experience.

Borg and her students filed public records requests to get emails Fulop administration officials traded with and about the Jersey City Times, and, after getting them, they alleged the emails show the city retaliated against the Jersey City Times, violating the First Amendment and the site’s rights to due process and equal access.

(Borg has also represented the New Jersey Monitor in a legal matter.)

The Jersey City Times was returned to the press list after Borg and her students wrote to the City’s attorney arguing that the City was unlawfully discriminating against the publication.
