NORTH BERGEN -- A hearing of the simple assault claim by a Secaucus man against Union City Mayor Brian Stack, which was previously scheduled for today (Monday), has been postponed until Jan. 28 at 5:30 p.m., according to a municipal court official.
The mayor was accused by Raymond Mitchell, 33, of assaulting him at the mayor’s holiday party in North Bergen on Dec. 14.
Stack’s lawyer, Dennis McAlevy, told NJ.com that the hearing was postponed because he was still waiting for discovery documents, including security camera footage from the evening of the alleged incident.
Stack denied that the alleged incident took place, accusing North Bergen Mayor Nicholas Sacco of orchestrating the event in an attempt to discredit Stack. A spokesman for Sacco denied the allegation.
