Guess they’re not holding it against him

Judge David Bauman, the Superior Court judge who was nominated today for the state Supreme Court,was the judge who issued an injunction this past summer barring the state from seizing $13 million in unspent affordable housing funds from the township of Marlboro.

In granting ther injunction, Bauman ruled that the state had not adopted sufficient guidelines for townships to spend the money by the July 2012 deadline.

The administration had hoped to take some $160 million in unspent affordable housing funds as the result of a 2008 law that created the deadline to commit the funds.

Towns such as Marlboro fought the effort, citing the lack of guidelines.
