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.

What would life be in New Jersey without allegations of government corruption everywhere you look?

If you believe there's no basis for suspicion of a conflict... well, I have a nice bridge over in Brooklyn that I'd like to sell you...

Ingelsino will get his buddy Chris to create alot of traffic for you and make the value go down if you don't endorse him :)

and who is John Valori? It's Lou Valori.... can't Patch get anything right? How can you count on anything being right if they can't get a simple name right. If there is a conflict between Valori and Carfi with Ingelsino.. then there is a conflict with Ingelsino with Valori and Carifi. Get real.. its a two way street. Oh yeah, I forgot the conflict attorney was appointed by Barberio. That explains everything. Did Ingelsino and Barberio have another Sunday night meeting with the conflicts attorney that he "conveniently forgot to bill for?"

Council: Bring on the vote, municipal attorneys are your power to approve or deny.

@Jim Please give examples of how Mr. Inglesino has fought and won any lawsuit. Also please explain why he is against the disclosure of itemized billing for his work.

"Jim" can you cite some examples of how Inglesino has saved the township money, what lawsuits? What did past attorney's charge for similiar cases? "Hands down the best attorney" by who's standards? barberio who can't speak at a council meeting without guidance by inglesino or christie who appoints his friends in strategically politically relevant positions? The citizen's of Parsippany are not ignorant "Jim".

We need to clean house and that means getting rid of bullies, liars and cheats......which includes christie, barberio and inglesino....they serve only their own interests, not that of the people. Their "mask" of service is just that, a mask, while pushing their own personal agendas. It doesn't take a politically saavy individual to see that, you can just smell it!

My issue is how many of those 'frivolous lawsuits' are related to the ineffective management of our administration.
LuisL February 19, 2014 at 12:00 PM
You mean Jamie? He is the most inefficient person alive. He can't walk, talk or make a decision without calling Ingelsino. Get rid of both of them
LuisL February 19, 2014 at 12:29 PM
@selene: Your are actually correct.
joe raich February 26, 2014 at 10:09 AM
"Parsippany the Place to be" for conflict...We seem to deserve the leaders we elect. When are we going to wake up???
Wilnj February 26, 2014 at 11:39 AM
@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
