NOT FOR PUBLICATION WITHOUT THE APPROVAL OF THE APPELLATE DIVISION
Argued: February 6, 2002 - Decided: April 2, 2002
Remanded by the Supreme Court - September 5, 2002
Resubmitted September 23, 2002
As directed by the Supreme Court in its summary remand order of September 5, 2002, we have reviewed our decision, reported at 349 N.J. Super. 527 (2002), in light of the Court's decision in Shepherd v. Hunterdon Developmental Center, 174 N.J. 1 (2002).
The principles enunciated by this court in Shepherd v. Hunterdon Developmental Center, 336 N.J. Super. 395 (App. Div. 2001), upon which we relied in holding the "continuing violation doctrine" tolled the running of the statute of limitations on plaintiff's LAD claim, were affirmed by the Court in Shepherd, supra, 174 N.J. at 7.
Accordingly, we are satisfied our application of those principles is entirely consistent with the Supreme Court's decision.
We reaffirm the judgment of the trial court, except as modified in our prior decision.
