Jackson Rehires Cipriani As Township Attorney

At Tuesday evening’s Jackson Township Council meeting, Jean L. Cipriani was rehired as Township attorney, just weeks after resigning the post.

Cipriani has served as attorney for Jackson for around a decade, and she is deeply involved in two ongoing lawsuits that have been filed against Jackson alleging religious discrimination.

Cipriani had resigned her position as the firm she was working for, Gilmore & Monahan, was collapsing do the conviction of the firm’s founder George Gilmore on tax fraud charges. Gilmore, who was forced to resign as chairman of the Ocean County Republican Party, has now been ordered to undergo psychiatric evaluation prior to sentencing.

Following her resignation, Cipriani left Gilmore & Monahan, and joined the law firm of Rothstein, Mandell, Strohm & Halm. Jackson Township’s officials chose to rehire Cipriani at her new firm, likely due to her intimate knowledge of Jackson’s legal troubles.

Two suits claiming that Orthodox Jews were discriminated against by Jackson officials are progressing in court. Multiple instances of apparent religious discrimination have been documented, and Cipriani is considered by some officials to be Jackson’s best shot at slipping out of their legal entanglements.
