Member Cheryl Burstein Successfully Defends Appeal of Judgment

Cheryl Burstein successfully defended an appeal of a judgment granting possession of commercial space where the former tenant argued that the special civil part lacked both personal jurisdiction over the defendant and subject matter jurisdiction.
