Fifteen Persons Arrested for Violating Sunday Law in New Jersey

Fifteen persons were arrested yesterday in Bergen County for violating New Jersey’s Sunday closing law which was given public endorsement earlier this month in a referendum. They were released in $25 bail each on charges of being disorderly, for keeping their businesses open on Sunday.

The arrests took place despite a Superior Court injunction last week granting a stay of enforcement pending a decision of the law’s constitutionality. One of the firms affected by the arrests announced that it would start a contempt action against the County Prosecutor, Guy Calissi, for not complying with the court’s restraint order.
