SHEET METAL WORKERS' INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION LOCAL UNION 22 VS. RAYMOND KAVANAGH VS. DAVID CASTNER, ET AL.
A-3646-13T1

In this appeal of a summary judgment that affirmed a union's imposition of fines against defendant, the court affirmed the judge's upholding of the union's finding of violations and also rejected defendant's contention that he was wrongfully denied counsel at the union disciplinary proceedings. The court, however, reversed the trial judge's determination that the fines were reasonable because the judge did not consider factors relevant and necessary to that determination. The case is remanded for the trial judge to employ relevant factors as set forth in this opinion in assessing the reasonableness of the fine.
