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.

"Parsippany the Place to be" for conflict...We seem to deserve the leaders we elect. When are we going to wake up???

@Jim Smith - given the officer to patrolman ratio, the fact that I rarely see cops on patrol and the often troubling headlines I read here, I'm not certain I'd agree.

So now Mr. Inglesino wants to insert himself into private family matters of others? What will be next? http://www.nj.com/morris/index.ssf/2014/03/lincoln_park_teen_sues_parents_claims_she_was_thrown_out_of_home.html
