Peter G. Verniero was interviewed for The Star-Ledger's June 15, 2007 front page article about yesterday's New Jersey Supreme Court ruling involving the responsibility schools have in making sure their students are heading home safely. "The court reaffirmed today the strong state interest in protecting children. ... It no doubt will prompt school districts to review their existing policies," said former Justice Peter Verniero.
