Attorneys Anthony S. Bocchi and Neil Yoskin Successfully Obtained Denial of Temporary Injunctive Relief in a Case of First Impression as Reported by TIMEJanuary 13, 2023
Anthony S. Bocchi and Neil Yoskin of Cullen and Dykman LLP successfully obtained a denial of temporary injunctive relief in a case of first impression as reported by TIME. Mr. Bocchi serves as lead litigation counsel for the City of North Wildwood in a dispute with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection. Mr. Yoskin, as environmental counsel for the City of North Wildwood, had previously led the City’s efforts in seeking an “Emergency Authorization” from the NJDEP to build a bulkhead to provide North Wildwood with severely needed coastal protection. The NJDEP denied the City’s Emergency Authorization application and then instituted a lawsuit seeking to, among other things, temporarily enjoin North Wildwood from building the emergency bulkhead. Mr. Bocchi opposed the application for temporary injunctive relief and, ultimately, the court denied the NJDEP’s application. The case has garnered national media attention due to the public’s growing concern about climate change.

Messrs. Bocchi and Yoskin were assisted on the matter by Steven Siegel, Ryan Duffy, and Thomas Lahey.
