Bergen County can now officially join the congestion pricing lawsuit against the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, the U.S. District Court of New Jersey approved.
The brief argues that congestion pricing will increase air pollution and will only benefit New York City at the expense of Bergen County and its residents.
"The acceptance of Bergen County's amicus brief by the U.S. District Court of New Jersey signifies a crucial step forward in our fight against the unjust burden of New York's congestion pricing scheme," Bergen County Executive Jim Tedesco said in a statement. "It is surely encouraging news and my administration looks forward to our day in court to stand up for the well-being of our residents by stopping the implementation of this selfish money grab by New York City."
Oral arguments are scheduled to begin April 3 and 4.
