TO GET IMMUNITY LEGISLATION FOR PLANNED REAL ESTATE DEVELOPMENTS PASSED INTO LAW IN NEW JERSEY
We have important news about legislation introduced by Assemblymen Mazzeo and Armato and Senator Greenstein. You all are quite aware of the liability issues that contributed to preventing 84% of all community association pools, gyms and other amenities in New Jersey from opening last year. A repeat of this situation this year would be really awful, and this new legislation will help us in the all-important decision whether to open our pools and other amenities.
Assemblymen Mazzeo and Armato from Atlantic County have introduced A4979. Senator Greenstein, from Mercer and Middlesex Counties, has now introduced the identical bill in the Senate, S3584, which is modeled after language which your CAI Legislative Action Committee (LAC-NJ) recommended. These bills provide that any illness, injury or death from or related to an exposure to or transmission of COVID19 on the premises of a planned real estate development shall not give rise to any cause of action. This immunity would not apply to acts or omissions constituting a crime, actual fraud, actual malice, gross negligence, recklessness, or willful misconduct.
