Kiddie Kollege Class Action Ruling is Still Pending

Judge James Rafferty awarded $1.5 million in January 2011 for a class of children whose risk of neurological deficits was substantially increased due to their being exposed to mercury vapor at the Kiddie Kollege Daycare Center in Franklin Township, Gloucester County, New Jersey.  After years of post-trial arguments by the defense lawyers for Franklin Township, and then after years of appellate briefing, the Appellate Division heard oral argument. No decision has been rendered yet. The issues range from whether the verdict against Franklin Township should stand, to whether the successful plaintiff lawyers should receive fees for winning the case and establishing testing for the children. I am the court appointed Lead Counsel for all the plaintiff class actions. The Franklin Township defense  lawyers have made a fortune defending the case, filing numerous motions  over the years, filing post trial motions and then filing a voluminous appeal. We hope that justice, as they say, will prevail.
