Like the Democratic primary, this thing seems to go on and on.

A state Appeals Court today ruled in favor of former Heisman trophy winner (and Citigroup bigwig) Pete Dawkins and his wife, Judith, in a challenge brought by their Wall Street billionaire Rumson neighbor, Mickey Gooch, and his wife, Diane, publisher of the Two River Times.
At issue is a ginormous poolhouse the Dawkinses want to build on their West River Road property on the Navesink.
They can go ahead and build it, the three-judge panel ruled.
But just in case this isn’t the end of the battle, the court also disqualified the law firm Ansell, Zaro, Grimm & Aaron from representing the Gooches any further in this case, finding that the firm had a conflict of interest.
Gooch is the founder and chairman of GFI Inc., a Wall Street firm.
