I was aware of this case before I went to court in Maryland to fight a
laser ticket I received.  My lawyer told me that laser was determined
accurate in the highest court in Maryland and that the NJ case has no
bearing in a Maryland court.  Meaning...I'd have to take the case all the
way up to the highest state court in Maryland to have laser over-ruled.  So
the NJ case only points out that it can be beat.  It's up to someone who's
wealthy to beat it!
