RCCB Partner Matthew Faranda-Diedrich Represents Individuals Suing the New Jersey Turnpike Authority

Firm News
, January 12, 2023

Matthew Faranda-Diedrich represents individuals suing the New Jersey Turnpike Authority related to the imposition of a $50 EZ-Pass fine that RCCB contends is illegal and excessive. This novel matter is the first of its kind, as we understand it, filed against a governmental authority on the grounds that collection of a $50 so-called “administrative fee” from individual motorists traveling toll roads violates applicable law, is excessive, and should be returned to motorists. As pled, the matter involves well over 5,000,000 motorists, each of whom were charged the excessive fine. Our team developed the theory of both liability and damages, and we were successful in obtaining a remand from the New Jersey Appellate Division, which ordered a thorough review of the basis and support for the governmental authority’s claim that it cost them $50 to collect each unpaid toll. Long v. New Jersey Tpk. Auth., 2019 WL 1093325 (N.J. Super. Ct. App. Div. March 8, 2019).
