Appellate Division Affirms Dismissal of Claims against Borough and Police Department

The Appellate Division affirmed the trial court’s decision to dismiss plaintiff’s complaint with prejudice. Plaintiff had sued the Borough of Leonia, represented by Pfund McDonnell, PC, alleging various civil rights violations by the Borough’s police department. Judge Rachelle Harz, J.S.C. ruled that not only that the matter should be dismissed with prejudice on procedural grounds, but that the immunities afforded to the police department under Title 59 applied to plaintiff’s cause of action.
