Parsippany-Troy Hills Township attorney John Inglesino has no conflict of interest while counseling the municipality according to a legal opinion as reported by nj.com.
The opinion, made by Parsippany conflicts counsel Michael B. Lavery, says Inglesino has no conflict despite two councilmen saying otherwise, the report said. In fact, Lavery said Councilman John Valori – who said he would pursue his own legal advice because he believes Inglesino does have a conflict – had a conflict of interest from accusing Inglesino and Mayor James Barberio of engaging in bribery in 2013, the report said.
Lavery also said councilman Paul Carifi, Jr. could have a conflict of interest since the elected official’s brother has an ongoing lawsuit against the township.
Part of Lavery’s decision was because Inglesino represents the township, not any single member of the council, the report said.
