N.J. Supreme Court to hear Iron Mountain case


On May 21, the New Jersey Supreme Court granted certification to petitioner Iron Mountain Information Management, Inc. in a case which could be a precedent setting decision in eminent domain law. See the Appellate Division opinion in Iron Mountain Information Management, Inc. v. City of Newark et al (A6561-06) and discussion in our previous blog post, Notice to commercial tenants in eminent domain cases (March 23, 2009). The Supreme Court will consider the issue of notice to a commercial tenant within a redevelopment area under the Local Redevelopment Housing Law, as well as the underlying issue of blight. Below are the relevant documents that have been submitted to the Court and the order granting certification:
