Councilwoman Drops Lawsuit Against City
A Hoboken councilwoman has dropped a lawsuit against the city after she received un-redacted copies of legal bills she had requested.

Councilwoman Beth Mason filed a lawsuit earlier this month claiming the city blacked out too much information on invoices from Florio, Perrucci, Steinhardt & Fader, a firm hired in August by Councilman at-large Ravinder Bhalla, according to NJ.com.

The city, which had claimed attorney-client privilege as the reason for the amount of redaction in response to Mason's Open Public Records request, provided on Thursday un-redacted copies of the 39 pages of invoices, NJ.com reported.
