Ruling Delayed in NJ School Trip Sex Case

A ruling on whether New Jersey can prosecute two high school employees accused of having sex with students on a school trip to Germany has been delayed after a damaged water pipe forced officials to close the Bergen County courthouse.

A decision was expected Monday regarding the two suspended Paramus Catholic High school employees.

Their lawyers have argued that the state can’t prosecute because the alleged acts took place in Germany. But prosecutors say a permission form signed by parents gives the school significant responsibility for taking care of the students.

Artur Sopel was the school’s vice president of operations and Michael Sumulikoski was a substitute teacher and assistant football coach. Both acted as chaperones on the trip in February 2011.

It’s not yet known when the ruling will be issued.
