Trump's Son-In-Law Settles Lawsuit with Two Monmouth County Restaurants

Why did Jared Kushner end litigation over a dispute with two New Jersey restaurants?

President-Elect Donald Trump has praised his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, saying that the 35-year-old businessman could play a role in trying to bring peace to the Middle East.

Whether or not that is possible, Kushner has brought some peace to Long Branch, New Jersey by agreeing to a settlement in a lawsuit brought by two local businesses. Kushner had been seeking to evict Stewart's Root Beer and Corner Café & Bistro from his Pier Village development but has now relented.

Developer Did Not Countersign Renewal Leases for the Restaurants

The lawsuit arose over a lease dispute between the two restaurants and the Kushner Companies, Kushner's development company. The restaurants had been leasing at Pier Village years, but their leases were both due for renewal in 2015, not long after the original developer of Pier Village sold the retail premises to Kushner's company and another company.

Succession Planning for Your Family Business: Start Preparing Now!

Every owner of a closely-held family business wants to know the business will continue—even thrive—once they’re gone. A well run, well managed family business can provide for you and your loved ones long after you’ve stepped down from its operation. It can even support your family after you’re gone.

Out of State Residents With Outstanding Warrants in New Jersey

If you are an out of state resident with an outstanding warrant in the State of New Jersey you are at risk. If you are stopped by police officials in your home state they may see that you have an outstanding warrant and may take you into custody. Therefore, it is important that you do not ignore the fact that there is a warrant out for your arrest. The fact that you are living outside the state of New Jersey does not mean that the warrant will not appear if local law enforcement officers, or potential employers, do a background check. The fact that the warrant has been outstanding for a long period of time does not mean that the warrant does not exist or that it has simply been lifted by the state of New Jersey.

What should you do if you have such a warrant? You should contact a licensed New Jersey legal professional for guidance. They can help you negotiate a safe surrender and help you to resolve the underlying legal issue. If your warrant is for a non-violent crime some New Jersey jurisdictions have safe haven programs where you can come and turn yourself in to satisfy the warrant without risk of detainment. It is also possible for an attorney to negotiate a plea deal with the prosecutor and have you come into Court and satisfy your Warrant at the same time that you resolve your underlying legal issue.
