Kearny is a Hudson County suburb of Newark that was named after Civil War General Phillip Kearny. Kearny was incorporated as a township in 1867 and had a population of around 40,000 in the 2000 census.
Kearny is also home to a number of talented lawyers who are familiar with local court procedures. Lawyers in Kearny take a wide variety of cases; some typical examples include: wrongful termination, personal injury, real estate, divorces, and child custody cases.
Recently in Kearny, the county correctional facility along Lincoln Highway realized they were set to release 150 sex offenders who have served their sentences but were deemed too dangerous to be return into society. Ex-Governor Christie Whitman invoked her emergency powers to keep the men there almost a year ago, but the New Jersey appellate court upheld a lower court ruling that the men should be relocated within the year.
