Hundreds of people gathered to hear Gov. Phil Murphy, Rabbi Clifford Kulwin, and other religious leaders speak at a quickly-organized vigil at Temple B'Nai Abraham in Livingston Sunday morning. "We must find the courage, even through tears and heartbreak, to reverse this trend. We cannot allow the normalization of hatred," said Murphy, who wore a black yarmulke with his suit. The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) said in an early 2018 study that anti-Semitic incidents had gone up by 32 percent in New Jersey. (NJ.com)

 

BOOKER TO ACTIVISTS: "WE ARE IN A MORAL MOVEMENT"

ELDER LAW ATTORNEY STOLE MILLIONS FROM SENIORS

"It was nothing other than greed,'' Superior Court Judge Michael Collins said Friday before he imposed a ten-year prison term on elder law attorney Robert Novy. The Manchester-based attorney plead guilty to stealing more than $3 million from at least two dozen victims: clients in their 80s and 90s, some living with dementia. Deputy Attorney General William Conlon said the thefts occurred over at least a decade. Novy, who had been the host of a local radio show on elder law for more than 20 years, has paid $4 million into funds for restitution to the victims or their heirs, as well as a $500,000 fine.

BERGEN SHRIFF CANDIDATE SUES TO HALT ELECTION

Robert Kugler, an independent candidate for Bergen County sheriff, sued the county clerk’s office Friday to stop what he claims is an illegal election tainted by confusion and bias. But the county clerk said Sunday that he has followed the letter of the law throughout the truncated process, which began a month ago after the abrupt resignation of former Sheriff Michael Saudino. The lawsuit comes after the publication of a recording on which Saudino made racist and homophobic comments during a January meeting. It is unclear what effect the lawsuit will have on the Nov. 6 sheriff’s election.
