“In New Jersey, the only way tenants can be evicted from their rental premises is if a judge permits the eviction after a lawsuit has been decided in favor of the landlord. A landlord cannot evict a tenant or remove a tenant’s belongings from a rental premises without first obtaining a judgment for possession and a warrant of removal. Arrangements must be made with the court officer assigned to the case to evict the tenant. It is illegal for a landlord to force a tenant out by refusing access, shutting off utilities, changing the locks or padlocking the premises. A landlord also cannot take possession of a tenant’s personal belongings or furniture in an attempt to force the tenant to pay rent.
If a landlord illegally evicts a tenant from the tenant’s rental premises, the tenant can file a complaint and order to show cause in the Special Civil Part and be put back in the rental premises by the judge.”

Sorrentino and several of his family members have another tanning salon in Florida. It has been a very rough few months for the star who was indicted by a federal grand jury in New Jersey in September.
