Gusciora, Lagana Legislation to Exempt Businesses from Courts Fees in Fraudulent Lawsuits Advances in Assembly(TRENTON) - Legislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Reed Gusciora and Joseph Lagana to eliminate the award of attorney's fees, filing fees, and costs of suit in cases of technical violations under the Consumer Fraud Act was released by an Assembly panel on Thursday.
"Right now, companies must still pay counsel fees and all costs of a lawsuit against them even if they won the case," said Gusciora (D- Mercer, Hunterdon). "The legislation provides relief for first time violations where every intention was made to follow the rules of the Consumer Fraud Act and this effort is recognized by the court."
Gusciora Bill to Extend Drug Treatment to State Correctional Inmates Ineligible for Treatment Approved by Assembly PanelAn Assembly panel on Thursday released legislation sponsored by Assemblyman Reed Gusciora (D-Mercer/Hunterdon) requiring state correctional facilities to allow inmates who are currently ineligible for drug treatment programs to receive treatment.
The bill (A-3159) provides that an inmate in a state correctional facility who is otherwise eligible for drug treatment cannot be denied access to a drug treatment program operating in a state correctional facility based solely on that inmate having any detainer or open charge issued against him.
