Pen/Ben Court Decision Tuesday June 9

On the NJ Judiciary website schedule for Tuesday is:

Expected Supreme Court Opinions: A-55-14 Christopher Burgos v. State of New Jersey (075736) a.k.a. Pen/Ben.

Among the contested issues are:

  • Does the Pen/Ben Law of 2011 meet constitutional muster?

  • Does it create a contractual obligation?

  • Has the contractual obligation been impaired?

  • If so, what remedy does the the Supreme Court require?

    It’s “pins and needles” time folks.

      The decision will be announced at 10 AM. One union official I talked to did not seem too optimistic, but I’m not sure what that was based on. But we’ll find out early tomorrow.
