Mt. Laurel case update from Supportive Housing Associaiton of NJ

NJ Supreme Court - Mt. Laurel Case Oral Arguments Heard Today in Trenton
SHA was present today as the NJ Supreme Court heard oral arguments on the Mt. Laurel Doctrine. We are hopeful that the Court will uphold the law so that people of low income, many of whom live with disabilities, are not discriminated against and have access to affordable homes throughout the state.
See the Op-Ed published in today's Star Ledger:
By Tracy A. Siebold, counsel in the real estate department of Ballard Spahr LLP; Alison Recca-Ryan, Director of the New Jersey Program, CSH; and Gail Levinson, Executive Director, SHA.

Many thanks to Fair Share Housing Center and other affordable housing advocates for their skilled defense of the doctrine!
