The Supreme Court Adds Two More Cases

The Supreme Court announced today that it has granted certification in two more cases. In Sipko v. Koger, Inc., the question presented, as phrased by the Supreme Court Clerk’s office, is”Under the circumstances presented, is a remand required to reconsider the valuation of Koger Distributed Solutions, Inc., and Koger Professional Services, Inc.?” In an unpublished opinion, a three-judge panel of the Appellate Division remanded the case for reconsideration of the valuations. This case, which has a 2007 Chancery Division docket number, was before the Supreme Court previously. Sipko v. Koger, Inc., 214 N.J. 364 (2013). Now, years later, it is back again.

The other new appeal is State v. Bell. That case presents this question: “If a single accident results in more than one death, does the rule of multiplicity prohibit charging a defendant for multiple counts of leaving the scene of an accident resulting in the death of another person, N.J.S.A. 2C:11-5.1?” The Appellate Division, in an unpublished opinion by a two-judge panel, reversed the that conviction because, that court said, the State violated the rule against multiplicity.
