|Dana Wefer, Esq.|
In fact, Wefer argued (and won) Mazdabrook Commons Homeowners’ Ass’n v. Wasim Khan (A-65-10) (067094) before the New Jersey Supreme Court.
Wefer successfully argued that the New Jersey State Constitution guarantees homeowners the right to post political signs in their windows, even if such signs are prohibited by their homeowner or condominium association. The New Jersey Supreme Court determined that such a restriction was unconstitutional, even when contained in the association’s governing document, holding that “[b]alancing the minimal interference with Mazdabrook’s private property interest against Khan’s free speech right to post political signs on his own property, we conclude that the sign policy in question violates the free speech clause of the State Constitution.”
Pretty impressive. Did you notice Wefer got an amicus brief from the ACLU argued by Frank Askin, one of America's leading experts on civil liberties?
So, in keeping with Wefer's passion for the First Amendment, she has written an(other) article for the premier legal newspaper in our state, The NJ Law Journal, " SLAPPing Back: Responding to Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation."
