D’Aurizio v. Borough of Palisades Park, 899 F.Supp. 1352, 43 Fed. R. Evid. Serv. 300 (D.N.J., Sep 29, 1995) (D’Aurizio II)
Practice Areas: Employment Law, Public Entity and Civil Rights Litigation
In this Federal court matter, our firm represented the Board of Education of Palisades Park. A former school custodian sued borough and various individuals affiliated therewith, alleging that his termination was based upon his engaging in protected political activities, in violation of Sec. 1983, 1985 and 1986, New Jersey’s Law Against Discrimination (LAD), and state law of tortious interference. The plaintiff, during the discovery stage of the litigation, sought to compel a non-party witnesses to disclose how she voted in a general election. Our office successfully argued that the federal voting privelege applied to bar the plaintiff from successfully compelling her to do so.
