LONGSHORE APPLICANT DENIED REGISTRATION FOR FAILING TO DISCLOSE ARREST AND FOR DRIVING FOR OVER TWENTY YEARS WITH A SUSPENDED DRIVER’S LICENSE
October 8, 2019
Today, the Commission denied the Application for Longshoreman Registration of Raymond O’Shea Boone, 48, of Union, New Jersey, for inclusion on the Waterfront Commission Register as a warehouseman. Following an administrative hearing before an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ), the ALJ found that Boone had committed fraud, deceit or misrepresentation on his application by failing to list all of his previous arrests, especially one in 1998, where Boone had received a 1992 Acura vehicle which had been stolen from U.S. Auto Exchange. The ALJ further found that between 1991 and 2012, Boone had knowingly driven a motor vehicle on a consistent and continual basis while his driver license was suspended. Based on “the undisputed evidence,” the ALJ found that Boone’s presence on the ports would constitute a danger to the public peace of safety, the ALJ recommended that Boone’s application be denied. The Commission adopted the ALJ’s recommendation.
