As we have previously alerted our members, on July 19, 2018 the New Jersey Supreme Court issued an Order appointing a three-judge panel to conduct a series of hearings in the northern, central, and southern part of the State as to why minor municipal court complaints pending for more than 15 years should not be dismissed. In an Administrative Order issued earlier this week, the Acting Administrator of the Courts set out the time and place for the three hearings. The hearings will be held at 10:00 a.m. the following days and locations:
October 22, 2018, Essex County Veterans Courthouse
October 23, 2018, Somerset County Courthouse
October 24, 2018, Burlington County Olde Courthouse
Mount Holly, NJ
All three hearings are open to the public and written comments are being accepted. Those wishing to speak at any one of the three hearing sessions must submit a written request along with a summary of comments related to the topic by October 15, 2018.
For full details, including information on submitting comments, please see the Notice To The Bar, issued in connection with the Court’s Order. If you do submit written comments, the League requests that you kindly forward a copy to Frank Marshall at email@example.com.
