New Jersey’s family care program used a luxury car rental company as a front to try to evade regulation.
The New Jersey Family Care Agency is a nonprofit agency that provides care to elderly residents.
It has been operating in New Jersey since 2015.
The agency was fined in 2016 for not properly disclosing the names of people who paid for care.
Now, the agency is seeking to avoid a $250,000 penalty from the Department of Business Regulation.
That is an increase from the $150,000 that was assessed last year.
But the agency’s attorneys are challenging the fine.
They say the fine was a way to force them to reveal the identities of the people who made their payments.
The lawsuit filed by the agency and its lawyers says the name of the company should have been disclosed to the public, because the agency should have known who was paying for care and how much they were paying.
“You know, we don’t want to have the people that are the customers of the agency that we have to go to court to defend,” said lawyer Scott Sosnick.
The lawsuit argues that the agency violated a law passed by New Jersey lawmakers to protect public safety.
The law says the agency must notify people that they are being sued.
The agency was already under fire last year after it was accused of using the name and photo of a victim of sexual assault.
The state Attorney General’s office sued the agency for violating the privacy rights of the victim.
The attorney general has said that it will fight the fine because the public interest in privacy outweighs the agency violating privacy laws.
