IDEA School district’s motion for a stay pending appeal denied. The school district did not demonstrate a likelihood of success on the merits, did not sufficiently explain how the ALJ erred in reaching his conclusions. While the issue of irreparable harm weighed in favor of the school district, the harm to the non-moving party weighed in favor of the defendant parents and the public interest factor was neutral. All factors considered the district did not meet its burden of proof to warrant the granting of a stay. Millburn Twp. Bd. of Educ. v. M.P.Civil Action No.: 15-5284 (JLL) (JAD), (D.N.J. January 26, 2016)

Labor Relations District Court dismissed plaintiff’s Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”) cause of action for failure to state a claim upon which relief can be granted. Plaintiff’s allegations of retribution for allegedly protected union activity have no colorable relationship to the wage and hour requirements within the purview of FLSA. The Court, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1367(c), declined to exercise supplemental jurisdiction over the remainder of the action, all of which involved claims arising under New Jersey state law, which were dismissed for lack of subject matter jurisdiction.
