Thompson v. City of Atlantic City, et al.

5-16-07 (A-44-06)

Atlantic City’s settlement with its own mayor was so infected
with conflicts of interest that it is void as a matter of state
law. Because the City’s unlawful agreement with Lorenzo
Langford and William Marsh is a nullity, the monies disbursed to
both must be returned to the municipal coffers. Any further
relief sought by Langford and Marsh, such as reinstating the
civil rights suit, must be pursued in federal court.
