Three years ago, the Gorgas were at the center of a legal battle in 2014 with former tenant Kai Patterson, to whom they leased the mansion when they moved to Franklin Lakes. They sued and sought to evict Patterson for nonpayment of rent when he “had withheld rent payments from April through July because he said [Joe] had failed to make promised repairs to the house,” according to In September of that same year, Patterson announced that he would move out; the Gorgas returned to the Montville mansion.

“As you can see we are back in our house in Montville and we couldn’t be happier. It is our home! We have been in that house since Antonia was two-years-old and the boys were born there.
