What is going on in New Jersey? I’m talking courtroom-side, not roadside. (Sidebar: Dove, what were you thinking?!) Anyone who knows me can attest that I have nothing but extreme love for my state of origin—seriously, I fist pump to Bon Jovi as I type this—but I have to wonder about some of the legal stories coming out of the Garden State this month.
It all started on March 1 when there was a story about parents suing a school because their children could no longer receive lunch deliveries. Seeing parents care so much about their children’s choice to have a deli delivery reminded me of what happened last year when Jersey parents defended their daughters’ right to bare arms. But the Springsteen state lost that loving feeling because soon after news broke that a high schooler was suing her parents for her private high school and college expenses. While the daughter’s emergency order for a payout was denied, the case may be headed to trial and the world will be able to find out whether this is yet another case of parents just don’t understand or a Veruca Salt encore. As the dust settled from that familial fiasco, another was being decided. Yesterday a NJ appellate court ruled that a father had to pony up and pay half of his daughter’s law school expenses. (As many have been reporting for years, the JD price tag is steep.) And the final case to round out this report is Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Theresa and Joe Giudice pleading guilty to fraud and facing the reality of prison and, in Joe’s case, possible deportation. And before you ask, yes they’ll keep filming until they’re sentenced, and no, you most likely aren’t going to be getting a reality version of Orange is the New Black.
I’ve heard tell that March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb. With any luck, once we get past week one, things will calm down.
