Lowenstein Sandler and Paul Weiss Escape Sanctions in Perelman Case
Benjamin Clarke of DeCotiis, FitzPatrick & Cole in Teaneck, who represents James Cohen, says he is “very happy that the court upheld the finding of frivolousness” and is “fully prepared to address the appropriateness of sanctions on remand.”
Robert Cohen’s counsel, Christopher Weiss of Ferro, LaBella & Zucker in Hackensack, did not return a call.
Perelman’s appellate lawyer, former New Jersey Supreme Court Justice Peter Verniero, now with Sills Cummis & Gross in Newark, referred a request for comment to Perelman’s spokeswoman Chris Taylor, who did not respond.
Samantha Perelman, now 23, filed her own undue influence case against her uncle James, and trial is now under way.
