AFFORDABLE HOUSING LITIGATION NEWS UPDATE: ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS LOSES IMMUNITY FROM BUILDER’S REMEDY LAWSUITS COURT SAYS BOROUGH’S AFFORDABLE HOUSING PLAN WILL NOW BE DESIGNED BY THIRD PARTIES, THE SPECIAL MASTER AND THE COURT
On August 27, 2019, in the first judicial proceeding following the Mayor and Council’s August 14 decision to continue the Borough’s affordable housing litigation rather than to settle with all parties, Superior Court Judge Christine Farrington made two unexpected rulings. The Court (1) revoked Englewood Cliffs immunity from builder’s remedy lawsuits, and (2) removed from the Borough’s control the ability to determine the elements of its affordable housing plan, which will now be designed by “third parties, the Special Master and the Court.”
