Supreme Court will hear NJGOP lawsuit over bonding bill

Oral arguments set for Aug. 5 after high court puts suit on the fast track

A lawsuit launched by the Republican State Committee seeking to invalidate a bonding proposal signed into law Thursday will be heard before the New Jersey Supreme Court next month.

Chief Justice Stuart Rabner issued an order moving the suit into the high court’s jurisdiction that also put the legal action on the fast track.

The plaintiffs, represented by State Sen. Michael Testa, have until July 24 to file a brief with the Supreme Court, while Murphy’s administration has until July 31 to respond.

Oral arguments are set to begin at 10 a.m. on Aug. 5, and attorneys for both side of the suit were ordered to attend a conference call with the Supreme Court’s clerk on Friday.
