District Court for the District of New Jersey Court Cases
The Prudential Insurance Company of America, the institution that for years has represented itself as the quintessence of stability, the Rock, used pervasive and systematic deceptive sales tactics to sell many individuals a great number of life insurance policies, to the benefit of Prudential and its sales agents, but to the detriment of trusting consumers. The old adage resounds true: insurance is not bought; it is sold. And through selling consumers "a piece of the rock," Prudential [...]

United States v. Price (1981)For fundamental and deeply rooted psychological reasons, as well as more mundane utilitarian considerations, it is characteristic of man to bury that which he fears and wishes to rid himself of. In the past, this engrained pattern of behavior has generally proven harmless and, indeed, has often led man to restore to the earth the substances he had removed from it. In today's industrialized society, however, the routine practice of burying highly toxic chemical wastes has resulted in serious [...]

Capua v. City of Plainfield (1986)In the face of widespread use of drugs and its intrusion into the workplace, it is tempting to turn to mass testing as a solution. The issue presented by this case is the constitutionality of such testing of current employees by governmental entities. Whether such testing may be done in the private sector or be imposed as a condition of accepting employment, even in the public sector, is not here presented. Government has a vital interest in making certain that its employees, particularly [...]

Court: District Court for the District of New Jersey Docket: Civil Action No. 04-4809 (JEI)
Plaintiff Peter Bishop moves to remand his complaint to the state court from which it was removed by defendant General Motors. Because we hold that Bishop's claim does not meet the amount in controversy required to establish federal subject matter jurisdiction, and because we decline to treat attorneys' fees or highly speculative punitive damages as aggregable for purposes of meeting the amount in controversy, plaintiff's motion to remand will be granted.
