NJ High Court Sets Arguments in 4th District Case

New Jersey’s Supreme Court will hear arguments in two weeks in a dispute over a contested Assembly race.

Gabriela Mosquera defeated Republican Shelley Lovett in southern New Jersey’s 4th Legislative District in November. But a state judge overturned the results this month, finding that Mosquera had not lived long enough in the district.

Lovett had sued because Mosquera moved into the district in December 2010. The judge found Mosquera fell short of the one year residency requirement in the state constitution.

An appeals court stayed the decision and said Mosquera could take office while the appeal is pending.

On Friday, the Supreme Court announced it will hear oral arguments in the case on Jan. 27. It ordered that no one can be sworn in until the matter is decided.
