Richardson v. Wanaque

In March 2013, the ACLU-NJ filed suit on behalf of Linda Richardson, the mother of a juvenile who had been impacted by Wanaque’s Juvenile Curfew ordinance. The Wanaque curfew ordinance imposes fines and community service on minors and their guardians when a minor is in public during the hours of the curfew. The ACLU-NJ believes that curfew ordinances restrict the fundamental rights of juveniles to frequent public places, to associate for political and social purposes, and to travel interstate. It also restricts Ms. Richardson’s ability to raise her daughter as she thinks best, free from unwarranted government intrusion. In 2014, Wanaque agreed to amend its ordinance
