Before Judges EASTWOOD, GOLDMANN and FRANCIS.
Superior Court of New Jersey, Appellate Division.
The opinion of the court was delivered by GOLDMANN, J.A.D.
The basic question for determination on this appeal is the nature of the title acquired by the Board of Education of the City of Jersey City when it condemned the property in question for school purposes in 1922. The Law Division concluded that the board had acquired a fee simple absolute from plaintiff's ancestor, 20 N.J.Super. 454 (1952). We agree.
