Bergen County, while located in New Jersey, is part of the New York Metropolitan area. Bergen County has been ranked as one of the most overpriced counties in the United States and is in the top twenty highest income counties in the nation. Despite this wealth, the county still enforces blue laws which prevent almost all business from being open on Sundays, with an exception for grocery stores. This is an ironic twist because the borough of Paramus, which is in Bergen County, is considered one of the largest shopping meccas in the country and accounts for over $5 billion in annual sales, more than any other ZIP code in the US, but must be closed on Sundays.
If you are involved in a legal battle in Bergen County, there are many Bergen County lawyers who are ready to represent you. These lawyers are well experienced in many areas of law including taxation, bankruptcy, corporate, intellectual property, personal injury, criminal defense, products liability, and more.
A judge in Bergen County recently dismissed a lawsuit that was brought by three New Jersey women against the author and publisher of a book called “Hot Chicks with Douchebags” for using their images in the book without permission. The women had been in a club a few years previously when the club’s representative asked if he could take pictures for the club’s website. The women agreed, and the photos were posted online. The author of a blog that had no relation with the club took the pictures from the website, and eventually used those pictures in his book. The Bergen County judge dismissed their suit, ruling that the pictures are satire.
