Morris v. Rutgers-Newark Univ.

The New Jersey Appellate Division reversed parts of the trial court’s grant of summary judgment because the court mistakenly dismissed some of the plaintiffs’ retaliation claims. The plaintiffs commenced this action for damages under the Law Against Discrimination, N.J.S.A. 10:5-1 to -50, because of the defendants’ various alleged acts or omissions. The defendants’ summary judgment motion produced mixed results, causing both sides to seek leave to appeal. The plaintiffs successfully argued that the trial court’s interpretation of N.J.S.A. 10:5-12(d) was impermissibly narrow.
