Another piece of good news came out of Mount Holly on Tuesday, May 10. The 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals reiterated that eminent domain proceedings could not move forward in the Gardens until the appeal is heard and ruled upon. The court had previously issued a stay on eminent domain until the case had its day in court, but the township asked whether it could condemn the homes that aren’t named in the lawsuit in the meantime. The court said no.
The court also ruled the case will be expedited, meaning the case could be heard in court and decided within a few months. Leona Wright, Nancy Lopez, Santos Cruz, and the rest of their neighbors in the Gardens will soon know the fate of the homes they love.
