ENID SANTIAGO VS. NEW YORK & NEW JERSEY PORT AUTHORITY, ET AL.A-5773-10T1
Plaintiff argued that because New Jersey and New York adopted "complimentary" legislation addressing workplace discrimination and whistleblowing, and because no notice was required under New Jersey's Tort Claims Act prior to filing suit under the LAD, CEPA or the CRA, she need not have provided pre- suit notice to the Port Authority.
We affirmed. Without reaching a conclusion as to plaintiff's "complimentary" legislation argument, we decided that the Port Authority's waiver of sovereign immunity and limited consent to suit was expressly conditioned on pre- litigation notice. Given the failure to provide such notice, the court lacked subject matter litigation, regardless of the nature of plaintiff's claims. 12-05-12
