Report: The Boys of Summer are Back in Town

The Boys of Summer are on the job in Hoboken and one unconfirmed report states:

Federal agents just parked on corner of 5th and Garden next to Church Sq, 2 suits got out, federal parking credentials in window, black lumina, something going down in my hood?

Another unconfirmed report says the Feds are also downtown at 1st and Adams.


Talking Ed Note: This unconfirmed report is based on a reliable source but should not be construed in any way to upset Al Sullivan at the Hudson Reporter who finds his dawdling on "bloggers" far more important.

The Old Guard has nothing to fear.  Al Sullivan says this is all a figment of our imagination.

Ex-mayor Anthony Russo lawsuit against BoE thrown out


A lawsuit by former mayor and convicted felon Anthony Russo against the Hoboken Board of Education claiming health related damages due to asbestos was dismissed in court late last month.

The suit claimed Russo suffered damages over a three year period when he was a teacher from 1990 - 1993 and attributed cancer due to the removal of asbestos.

The Superior Court of NJ ruled the statute of limitations had passed and dismissed the case noting:
In light of our holding, we need not address Russo's other arguments regarding the need for expert testimony as to causation. We only add that there is no requirement that the WCJ consider expert testimony before granting a motion to dismiss based on the statute of limitations. See N.J.A.C. 12:235-3.5(c)("motions shall be disposed of on the papers, unless a Judge of Compensation directs oral argument or further proceedings").

The complete ruling is available here:

Ex-mayor and convicted felon Anthony Russo saw his lawsuit dismissed against the Hoboken BoE.  

Talking Ed Note: Another day another Russo scam to get taxpayers money.
