Citation: 6 N.J.A.R. 150
Decision Date: 1980
Agency: DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION
Synopsis: Petitioners challanged respondent's action in offering behind-the- wheel driver education training only in its adult evening school. The respondent filed a motion to dismiss the complaint based on argu- ments that the petitioner had exceeded the 90 day statute-of-limi- tations contained in N.J..4.C. 6:24-1.2, that the defense of laches was appropriate and that petitioner had no standing to pursue the matter. The administrative law judge assigned to the case found that the respondent's action in putting behind-the-wheel driver education in the adult school took place in the spring of 1976 and went into effect in the 1976-1977 school year and that the association had not filed its petition until May 1980. The judge concluded that since no reason- able explanation had been heard as to why petitioner waited nearly four years to file its action, the petition was clearly beyond the limit of N.J..4.C. 6:24-1.2. Cassel R. Ruhlman Jr., Esq., for petitioner, (Ruhlman & Butrym, attorneys) Robert H. Greenwood, Esq., for respondent
