Supreme Court Denies Certification in Sammarone v. Bovino Case

December 17, 2007

Genova, Burns & Vernoia co-founding partner, Angelo Genova, successfully opposed a petition for certification submitted to the Supreme Court in the case of Sammarone v. Bovino.  This is a significant decision from the Supreme Court as the matter is now remanded to the trial court for further proceedings in accordance with the Appellate Division decision this past summer in Sammarone v. Bovino, 395 N.J. Super. 132 (App. Div. 2007) in which the Appellate Division ruled that Sammarone is entitled to pursue his claim for compensation from Bovino stemming from the developer's $46 million real estate purchase from the late Leona M. Helmsley. Genova, representing Sammarone, is assisted by Celia Bosco and Michael Grohs.
