Jackson Township’s Legal Woes Continue | G. Sonnenfeld

The legal morass Jackson Township stuck itself in just keeps getting deeper.

TLS recently reported that Jackson Trails had filed a lawsuit in state court over the township’s denial of their application, arguing that they should have been approved under Fair Share Housing rules.

Now, the Fair Share Housing Center (FSHC) is requesting that Judge Mark Troncone allow them to join the Jackson Trails applicant in suing Jackson Township.

In a letter to the judge the FSHC wrote, “The Jackson Trails development is an inclusionary project located in the “RG-3″ Zone that the Township of Jackson committed to as part of meeting its Mount Laurel obligations, and the project in question would have produced 92 affordable homes for lower-income households. The Jackson Planning Board’s denial of that inclusionary development’s application
appears to be another violation of the Township’s judgment of compliance and repose as well as the settlement agreement that FSHC and Jackson entered into.”

It is expected that Judge Troncone will allow the FSHC to join the lawsuit, adding more pressure to the legal headaches Jackson Township is already contending with.

  1. The more the merrier. Methinks “protected class” action. Everyone who is looking to buy a low-income house in Jackson should sign a petition and give it to the court. I think the lawyers could take that to the bank as well.

  2. It’s complicated phycology to figure out the mind of an anti-semite.
    Those whom shout anti Semitic slurs and have swastica tattoos are the most honest and least dangerous.
    Those whom are well dressed and speak very politely are the most dangerous anti-semites. That’s Amalaek.

  3. Jump on in! How about everyone sends an email or letter to the Jackson County Clerk asking, “How do I find low-income housing in Jackson. Why can’t I live in Jackson?”. Make a petition and submit it to the lawyers on both sides. A Protected Class, class action suit. Yes!

  4. Does this story, of multiple lawsuits, jog anyone’s memory? I think I remember that someone from Lakewood wrote to Jackson Township about their anti semitic laws and that if they continue, they will be hit over the head with continuous lawsuits….so be it!
