Cohen, Richard A.; And Others
Volume 2 of a two-volume series, this document is designed to facilitate research on school finance reform in New Jersey, specifically the Robinson v. Cahill decisions. The purpose of this effort is two-fold: to facilitate access to legal documents submitted during the four-year evolution of the Robinson case and to augment efforts to identify the legal doctrine and interpretations that the case and relevant commentary have produced. Following a brief introduction on the background of the school finance reform movement nationally and in New Jersey, part 1 summarizes the Robinson v. Cahill litigation. Part 2 contains abstracts of most of the briefs submitted in the case. Part 3 is an annotated bibliography of legal periodicals that make explicit reference to the Robinson decision. Part 4 contains two diagrams that sketch the complexity of the four-year litigation. (Author/JM)
