A New COAH Abolition Appeal for the Supreme Court

On July 6, 2012, the Supreme Court granted review of In re Plan for the Abolition of the Council on Affordable Housing, 424 N.J. Super. 410 (App. Div. 2012), a decision that was issued on March 8, 2012.  Today the Court announced that it had granted review of a related appeal in that same case.  The question presented, as phrased by the Clerk’s Office, is “Did the appellant demonstrate that the State intentionally disregarded the March 8, 2012 judgment of the Appellate Division (which is now on appeal to the Supreme Court as A-127-11), thereby warranting the granting of relief in aid of litigant’s rights pursuant to Rule 1:10-3?”  No oral argument had yet been scheduled in the first granted appeal.  It now seems likely that the two appeals will be argued together on a date to be determined.
