COURT

It is through the Municipal Courts that citizens in the State of New Jersey come into contact with the judicial system, either as a defendant, a victim, or a witness. Since most citizens never appear before another court, it is from their experience in the Municipal Courts that most people base their conclusions about the quality of justice in New Jersey.


JURISDICTION

The Municipal Courts are considered courts of limited jurisdiction, having responsibility for:
  • Fish and game violations
  • Minor criminal-type offenses (for example, simple assault, bad checks)
  • Motor vehicle offenses
  • Municipal ordinance offenses (such as dog barking or building code violations)
  • Parking tickets
A Municipal Court usually has jurisdiction over only cases that occur within the boundaries of its municipality

Municipal Judge S. Gregory Moscaritolo
Court Administrator Susan Stucke
Borough Prosecutor Andrew Cimiluca
Public Defender Mark Winkler
