Judge Dismisses Lawsuit Challenging Jackson Land Swap Agreement

A New Jersey Superior Court judge dismissed a lawsuit which was filed against the Jackson land swap agreement, according to an order uploaded to the court docket Wednesday evening and reviewed by TLS.

As part of the land swap agreement, the township traded 46 acres of land on the border with Lakewood, for a 35-acre plot of land on Leesville Road.

The lawsuit, which accused the township of discriminating against its Jewish residents by forcing their schools to be in specific neighborhoods, was dismissed with prejudice, which means the plaintiffs cannot refile the case, although they can appeal the decision.

The lawsuit also claimed the lands were not equally appraised – something today’s order did not address.
