Last Sunday morning here on Jersey Magazine, my guest was Kevin Larner.
Kevin is president of Ridge Baseball Club (RBC) in Basking Ridge, New Jersey and he was telling us about a lawsuit that had been filed against Ridge Baseball Club and Bernards Township by several homeowners over issues related to the Ridge Baseball Complex.
Well, on Monday of last week, Kevin was pleased to announce that that law suit has been dismissed and this is the press release from Ridge Baseball Club.
Ridge Baseball Club press release on the lawsuit dismissal
This morning, the several homeowners who filed suit against Ridge Baseball Club and Bernard’s township seeking to invalidate RBC’s lease with the township for the Ridge Baseball Complex, filed a notice of dismissal with the Somerset County Superior Court terminating their lawsuit.
In the statement, Kevin went on to say, “Ridge Baseball Club is thrilled that the plaintiffs have decided to dismiss the lawsuit. We cannot express enough thanks to all the community members who reached out and voiced their overwhelming support for RBC over the past week.”
“We also want to thank our local elected officials. It was truly humbling. We are all blessed to live in a community as supportive as Basking Ridge.”
Kevin finished the statement by saying, “It is now time to put this entire unfortunate incident behind us and focus on what is important, the kids.”
“The RBC board and all the volunteers who support RBC are happy that we can now turn 100% of our attention to our true mission, providing the best baseball program possible to the boys and girls of Basking Ridge.”
