T.B. v. Novia

The New Jersey Appellate Division heard appeals from Woodbridge Township and the town’s Board of Education after their summary judgment motions were denied in an unusual personal injury case. The plaintiff was walking home from high school when the defendant struck him with her car. The plaintiff sued the driver and included the school district and Township because N.J.S.A. 18A:39-1.5 requires schools to offer transportation services for students who “must walk to and from school along hazardous routes.” The Appellate Division affirmed the lower court’s order as to the Board but reversed as to the Township.
