A state Appellate Court has ordered the city to hold off on using eminent domain to seize a beachfront home for a redevelopment project. An order granting a stay of the city’s pending condemnation action against Louis and Lillian Anzalone’s Ocean Terrace home was signed Nov. 16 by Appellate Judges Jack L. Lintner and Christine L. Miniman.
“This is a very good sign,” said the Anzalones’ attorney, William J. Ward Monday. “You do not get a stay granted very often,” said Ward, of Carlin, Ward, Ash & Heiart LLC, Florham Park. “They are not routinely granted.” – By Christine Varno, Staff Writer
