SHAKEEM MALIK HOLMES VS. JERSEY CITY POLICE DEPARTMENT A-1634-15T3


SHAKEEM MALIK HOLMES VS. JERSEY CITY POLICE DEPARTMENT
          A-1634-15T3

Therefore, the trial court erred in granting summary judgment, dismissing plaintiff's Law Against Discrimination complaint alleging "hostile-environment" discrimination in a place of public accommodation.
