Peter G. Verniero, Chair of the Appellate Practice Group, commented on the New Jersey Supreme Court’s ruling last week backing Governor Corzine's school-funding formula. “Peter Verniero, a former Supreme Court justice and state attorney general who argued for the state in earlier Abbott cases, called the ruling ‘very significant’." "If the statute lives up to its expectations, then it may mean the end of the so-called Abbott litigation," stated Verniero.
