The reviewing court in an opinion reversing the trial judge and reinstating the case wrote that the motion had lingered for too many years, ie. 4 years, the record below on the motion was vague and incomplete, and the legislative intent for an efficient and liberally construed process was not met.
The Appellate Division cited a 30 year old decision declaring the need for a more efficient process to adjudicate workers' compensation claims.
