According to this article, "On November 14, the New Jersey Supreme Court heard nearly five hours of oral argument on the validity of the Third Round Rules ("Rules") of the Council on Affordable Housing ("COAH"). These Rules abandoned the strict projection of the number of affordable housing units approach of Mount Laurel II and the Round 1 and Round 2 Rules in favor of a "growth share" approach which, among other things, for the first time created a direct quantifiable link between the amount of new non-residential square footage that a municipality issued certificates of occupancy for and the number of affordable housing units that a municipality had to provide."  The article also stated that Kevin Moore represented NAIOP in this matter.
