QSpot LGBT Center gets another extension to forestall eviction in Ocean Grove 

Qspot LGBT Center

QSpot LGBT Community Center got a little dose of good news in Monmouth County. The Center will be allowed to remain at the Jersey Shore Arts Center until at least the end of March under a revised agreement reached between all parties. The new agreement delays a court hearing still pending before Judge Perri for an injunction against the JSAC which QSpot had filed in December of last year.

“Under the new agreement, QSpot is legally safe and secure in our home until at least the end of March,” said John Mikytuck, QSpot Executive Director.  “This new agreement further extends a delay that was agreed to in December just prior to a scheduled hearing on QSpot’s request for an injunction,” said Mikytuck.

Under the terms of the original agreement, QSpot’s current lease will be extended at least until the court’s decision on the injunction is made, now likely sometime at the end of March. The agreement was approved by Judge Perri and provides QSpot with legal protections against any attempt by the JSAC to start eviction proceedings before the next court hearing.  QSpot’s lawyers, Mike Long and Steve Rosato of Lowenstein Sandler LLP, negotiated the agreement.
