The complex, which was also owned by AvalonBay Communities, was nearing the final stages of construction but succumbed to a blazing fire that ravaged not only the complex's four buildings but nine other neighboring houses and a number of nearby vehicles. This fire is recognized as one of the largest in the history of Bergen County and, similar to recent events, was able to ravage the building because of the lightweight wood-frame used during construction.

Whenever anyone becomes involved in a case, or even contemplates bringing a claim, they must be wary of the pitfalls of social media. In this technological age, if a party's dirty laundry is published for the world to see then it will most likely be used against them in the courtroom, even if it is a lie or an exaggeration.

Vitale backs that strong sentiment with legislation he sponsored along with Sen. Nicholas P. Scutari that would dramatically alter the landscape for predators and their victims in New Jersey.
