Advocating for Transparency: NJAJ's Amicus Curiae Appearance in Savage v. Twp. of Neptune

Amicus Curiae, or "friend of the court," plays a vital role in shaping the course of justice in the complex realm of legal battles. Lauren M. Law, a prominent member of the legal community, was selected by the New Jersey Association for Justice (NJAJ) to represent its stance before the Supreme Court of New Jersey in the case of Savage v. Twp. of Neptune, et al.
The NJAJ's Amicus Curiae Committee, committed to upholding individual rights and advancing its members' objectives, carefully selects cases where NJAJ's involvement can make a meaningful impact. In the case of Savage v. Twp. of Neptune, et al., the certified question regarding the enforceability of non-disparagement clauses in settlement agreements of Law Against Discrimination (LAD) claims is at the forefront.
Lauren M. Law, representing Amicus Curiae NJAJ, argues that provisions functioning as non-disclosure clauses in LAD-related settlement agreements should not be enforceable under the recent amendment to the LAD prohibiting confidentiality/non-disclosure agreements. This position aligns with the broader movement towards transparency and accountability in legal proceedings.
The #MeToo movement shed light on the prevalence of sexual harassment and assault, prompting legislative changes to strengthen protections for victims. NJAJ's Supreme Court submission stresses transparency over confidentiality in discrimination, retaliation, or harassment claims.
The outcome of Savage v. Twp. of Neptune will not only impact the immediate parties involved but will also set a precedent for future cases and shape the landscape of settlement agreements in New Jersey. NJAJ's stance reflects a commitment to a legal system that prioritizes justice and transparency.
Lauren M. Law, as Amicus Curiae, embodies hopes for a legal system prioritizing fairness and accountability.
