On Monday, December 15, 2014, the New Jersey Supreme Court ruled for Mr. Reisig’s client in the matter of State v. Joseph M. Jaffe. (http://www.judiciary.state.nj.us/opinions/supreme/A1213StatevJosephMJaffe.pdf). The New Jersey Supreme Court is the State’s highest court.
This opinion vindicated Mr. Reisig’s legal argument in the trial court in August 2012. Mr. Reisig’s persistence in pursuing his client’s rights during more than two years of the appellate process is a great example of never giving up the fight.
Also, the Jaffe opinion demonstrates how prescient Mr. Reisig in successfully raising a legal argument on behalf of his client without any prior New Jersey precedent. The significance of the Jaffe opinion cannot be overstated. It will serve to benefit criminal part defendants for decades
