New Jersey Governor Murphy Signs New Law To Broaden Who Can Pursue Survival Actions

Attorney Michael A. Fruhling, resident NJ partner at Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C., was one of the New Jersey  attorneys to bring the procedural issue to the attention of his colleagues at the New Jersey Association of Justice with regard to the New Jersey’s Survivor’s Act. The leadership at the New Jersey Association of Justice, where Mr. Fruhling is an active Board Member, helped make the passage of ASSEMBLY, No. 6133 a reality.
In short, Mr. Fruhling and others advised the Board that the Surrogate’s Court would only issue letters ad prosequendum, which allows for the prosecution of a wrongful death action, and would not issue general letters of administration, which authorized pursuit of the survival action claims, for his client.
