A Superior Court judge has rejected a motion to disqualify Sills Cummis & Gross from representing the plaintiff in a battle over control of an oil-refining technology company.

Sills Cummis was accused of being conflicted out of representing Pristec Refining Technologies because of the law firm’s concurrent duties to defendants in the case, who are part owners of that company. But Judge Katie Gummer noted that a ”nearly identical” motion to disqualify Sills Cummis from a related case was denied by Judge Joseph Quinn, also of Monmouth County Superior Court, in 2018.
