08 Nov Supreme Court to Hear Argument in Three Cases Today
The Supreme Court of New Jersey is set to hear argument in three cases today. As detailed by the Clerk’s office:
State v. Dickerson – Is the State required to produce search warrant information (including the affidavit filed in support of the search warrant and supporting investigative reports) prior to a detention hearing held pursuant to the Criminal Justice Reform Act (CJRA), N.J.S.A. 2A:162-15 to -26?
State v. Shaw; State v. Bolden – Was the statement uttered by defendant while detained in a police vehicle the result of an unlawful detention; and, under the circumstances presented, must defendant show a protected privacy interest in the tote bag where drug evidence was found?
Spade v. Select Comfort Corp.; Wenger v. Bob’s Discount Furniture, LLC – Is a consumer who receives a contract that does not comply with the Delivery of Household Furniture and Furnishings Regulations (Furniture Delivery Regulations), N.J.A.C. 13:45A-5, but has not suffered any adverse consequences from the noncompliance, an “aggrieved consumer” under the Truth-in-Consumer Contract Warranty and Notice Act (TCCWNA), N.J.S.A. 56:12-17; and, does a violation of the Furniture Delivery Regulations alone constitute a violation of a clearly established right or responsibility of the seller under the TCCWNA and thus provide a basis for relief under the TCCWNA?
