In his Tort Claim Notice, Bor writes that: “On or about February 8, 2002, February 9, 2022, March 14, 2022, to present, Offices of the Atlantic City Municipal Utilities Authority, Offices of Atlantic City Council, City Hall Atlantic City, and various other locations to be determined.”

Bor makes numerous serious assertions in his Tort Claim Notice, with specific allegations against Atlantic City, ACMUA, and State of New Jersey officials and government entities.
Bor concludes his Tort Claims Notice as follows:
Amount presently claimed: The amount claim will be $1,000,000.00. An estimated amount of prospective injuries, damages, or losses can not be fully ascertained since the damage is presently being incurred and will continue for some time in the future. In accordance with the TCA damage information will be provided on a regular basis but will include, but not limited to re-appointment of Solicitor at $75,000. per year; and ability to be considered for other public or private positions as a lawyer.
We will have the first on-air interview with Bor in the very near future.
