Supreme Court holds that settlement agreement must be disclosed
 

Issue Detail:

 
On January 25, 2010, the New Jersey Supreme Court upheld a 2009 Appellate Division decision holding that OPRA requires Monmouth County to disclose a settlement agreement arising out of a sexual harassment lawsuit filed by a county employee. The Court ruled: "A governmental entity cannot enter into a voluntary agreement at the end of a public lawsuit to keep a settlement confidential, and then claim a “reasonable expectation of privacy” in the amount of that settlement." I was one of the plaintiffs in the lawsuit and was ably represented by Walter M. Luers, Esq. of Oxford.
