Municipal and Public Entity Litigation
Crawford & McElhatton has, for years, been a firm that has been approved by the Camden County Municipal Joint Insurance Fund, and accordingly has handled numerous cases on behalf of CCMJIF asserting affirmative defenses relative to any and all tort claims acts or municipal and public entity defenses. In these cases, it is not uncommon to quickly develop a fact pattern which will allow for a dismissal owing to plaintiff’s failure to comply with the procedural requirements or a Motion for Summary Judgment owing to the tort claim defenses. As such, a large number of the cases have been able to be resolved by motion practice as opposed to a trial to conclusion. This has benefited our clients by minimizing litigation expenses.
