Thomas R. Kobin, John L. Shahdanian II and Raymond J. Seigler defeated a $9 million lawsuit by Damascus Bakery against the Town of Secaucus for its refusal to issue a building permit to the industrial bakery to relocate its factory in town.  Secaucus denied the permit because the bakery had not cured certain safety and zoning problems.  On a Motion for Summary Judgment, the United States District Court found that the bakery was subject to the same safety and zoning standards as other businesses, that it had been treated identically to other businesses, and that it had not established that its rights to due process and equal protection of law were violated.  The lawsuit was dismissed.
