Jen Electric, Inc. v. County of Essex

06-24-08 A-3957-07T1

In this case we affirm the dismissal of plaintiff's complaint and conclude that plaintiff does not have standing to challenge bidding specifications issued by Essex County because plaintiff was not a bidder or prospective bidder on the contract and is not a taxpayer in the County. We also affirm the denial of a motion to amend the complaint to add one of the bidders as a plaintiff because the bidder failed to challenge the bid specifications within the time required by N.J.S.A. 40A:11-13(e).
