W.M. v. T.M., A-4789-99T1 (App.Div. 2000)
Sat below: Hon. Alan J. Pogarsky, J.S.C. (Mercer County)
The trial court erred by resolving the material fact question of whether appellant had abused his daughter without conducting a plenary hearing. In light of the allegations made and the inherent difficulty of disproving same, appellant should have been granted access to the files of the Division of Youth and Family Services and the Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office.
