Jackson, NJ Lawsuit Filed Over Stalking of Orthodox Jewish Residents

From the Complaint:
“In an attempt to prevent Mr. Tawil from observing the Jewish faith under the guise of enforcing a zoning ordinance, Defendant Nixon in his position as a member of the Town Council directed Jackson Township zoning officers to stake out his home on Friday nights. On several occasions a zoning officer was parked outside 41 Pitney Lane in Jackson supervising Mr. Tawil and his guests coming to his house to practice the Jewish Faith. The repeated presence of these officers had a chilling effect, was intimidating and became a form of harassment. Mr. Tawil was being denied his right to pray at his home by the actions of the Jackson Township code enforcement.”
