Nearly Seven Years After Storm, New Life for Sandy Damages Claim in New Jersey

A claim for damages from Superstorm Sandy that has been rejected several times by the state of New Jersey got another chance from a divided state Supreme Court on Monday.

In a 4-3 ruling, the high court said an arbitrator who denied the owner of a group of homes in Bayonne compensation for oil damage misread evidence and shouldn’t have excluded expert evidence offered by the property owner. The case will now go back to arbitration.
