State v. St. Mary’s Church Gloucester

The Appellate Division ruled in State v. St. Mary’s Church Gloucester that the Eminent Domain Act of 1971 repealed a portion of N.J.S.A. 27:7-22. The latter statute had required the Commissioner of Transportation, upon taking property in eminent domain, to pay 6 percent interest on the judgment not previously held in ESCROW. Instead, the Eminent Domain Act orders the amount of interest to be calculated in the trial court’s discretion.
