Lynch, Milmed and Antell.

[148 NJSuper Page 250]
We note that in the trial judge's opinion the question of the viability of commercial contracts into which the Hudsontype municipalities have entered was reserved with leave granted to plaintiffs to move, if they so chose, with respect to any such contracts. 138 N.J. Super. at 342-343. Subsequent to Judge Pressler's opinion plaintiffs filed a stipulation waiving any right they may have to challenge such contracts. The issue is therefore no longer in the case.
