Int’l Brotherhood of Elec. Workers Local 400 v. Borough of Tinton Falls

New Jersey Appellate Division

June 15, 2021

The New Jersey Appellate Division affirmed the Law Division’s order dismissing a union’s complaint seeking declaratory relief. The union sought to halt work on a massive solar panel installation that its workers were not involved in. But the project was on a federal military base and not on state or local land. The Appellate Division agreed with the lower court that local officials were not the proper defendants and that local courts were not the proper forum for the action. The Court ruled that the lower court lacked jurisdiction, the complaint failed to state a claim, and the union failed to join an indispensable party.
