Scott Evans v. Atlantic City Board of Education, et al.


In this appeal, the court held that a sending-district representative on a receiving district's board of education was not entitled to vote on the appointment of the receiving board's solicitor. The court observed that N.J.S.A. 18A:38-8.1 enumerates those matters on which a sending-district representative is eligible to vote and held that the statute should be literally interpreted because its unambiguous language, as illuminated by its legislative history, reveals an intent to permit voting only on the matters expressly enumerated.
