New Jersey Law Journal

March 18, 2020
"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.

"Richard Epstein, co-chairman of the litigation department at Sills Cummis, welcomed the decision rejecting the disqualification motion.

"'We appreciate the trial court’s ruling, which is consistent with the ruling of Judge Quinn, which denied the first motion to disqualify. We also appreciate that the trial court rejected some of the misleading statements made by the defendants’ counsel. We hope the case can now move forward,' Epstein said."
