VOL. 2, NO. 143 DECISIONS RELEASED AUGUST 8, 1994 DEBTOR/CREDITOR – COMMERCIAL TRANSACTIONS 15-2-3906 Fords Nat’l Auto Mart v. Arnold D. Dauer & Professional Auto Leasing, Inc., App. Div. (7 pp.) Where plaintiff sued defendant for issuing worthless checks, and the jury found for the defendant, trial court erred in not granting plaintiff’s motion for a new trial, after plaintiff learned that defendant failed to admit during discovery that he had been indicted on other charges of writing worthless checks, since the evidence probably would have affected the trial’s outcome. FAMILY LAW 20-2-3907 Allen F. Goldman v. Sharon H. Goldman, App. Div. (15 pp.) Where plaintiff husband converted a secured loan to his brother into an unsecured loan, and agreed to extend the loan payments, the case is remanded so that the trial judge can determine whether the husband’s actions impaired defendant wife’s security. PHYSICIAN/PATIENT – NEGLIGENCE 29-2-3908 Douglas Ziemba v. Riverview Medical Center, et al., App. Div. (14 pp.) Where plaintiff was involuntarily committed after threatening to kill himself, trial court erred in not holding that defendants were entitled to immunity under N.J.S.A. 30:4-27.7, since they took reasonable steps in committing the plaintiff. WORKERS’ COMPENSATION 39-2-3909 Nichelle Allen v. Bridgeton IGA, App. Div. (5 pp.) Where employee injured her back after falling down stairs, workers’ compensation judge erred in finding five percent of total permanent partial disability, since the employee’s doctor did not support her version of the events. CRIMINAL LAW AND PROCEDURE 14-1-3910 State v. Stanley Lee Tucker, Supreme Ct. (52 pp.) Where defendant was convicted of murder, the Court held that (1) the 72-hour delay of defendant’s first court appearance did not require that his statements be suppressed, since the delay had little or no impact on the voluntariness of his statements, and (2) defendant’s subsequent confession was admissible at trial, because he did not request counsel at his first court appearance.
