Millburn is pursuing a Declaratory Judgment action before Judge Gardner of the Superior Court in Essex County with the expectation that the court will grant it a Judgment of Compliance/Repose if all parties involved in mediation have agreed to a settlement. Once a Fairness Hearing is completed and the Township granted compliance and repose from the courts, the Township will prepare a housing plan consistent with the FSHC settlement agreement. Also, Millburn has obtained temporary immunity from the court from future builder remedy lawsuits.
The Township's immunity has been the subject of numerous case management conferences as the Township negotiated with the Fair Share Housing Center on a settlement agreement. The settlement must be agreed upon by The Township of Millburn, Fair Share Housing, the Court's Special Master and any parties that have been granted intervener or interested party status in the case.
