Arbitration Hearing Adjournment Procedure for Hudson CountyARBITRATION HEARING ADJOURNMENT PROCEDURE FOR HUDSON COUNTY
Until further notice, the following procedure is to be followed when requesting an adjournment of an arbitration hearing in the Superior Court, Law Division Civil & Special Civil Part.
Any request for an adjournment in the Law Division Civil is to be made in writing or by FAX [(201) 217-5091], to the attention of Ms. Cheryl DAnna, Team Leader, 583 Newark Avenue, Jersey City, New Jersey, 07306. Requests are to include the following information:
- Name of case;
- Docket number;
- Scheduled arbitration hearing date ;
- Name of party requesting the adjournment;
- The specific reason(s) for the adjournment; and
- A representation to the court that the requesting party has informed all other parties
The requesting party should advise in the letter requesting the adjournment that he/she has conversed with all other parties and that they have or have not consented to the adjournment request.
No one should assume that the adjournment request will be granted. Adjournments shall be confirmed or denied by the court by telefax or telephone communication to the party who requested the adjournment. If the adjournment request is granted you will be notified of the new hearing date at that time. It shall be the obligation of the requesting party to timely advise all other parties whether the adjournment request was granted or denied and, if granted, to advise of the new hearing date fixed by the court.
All requests for adjournments are to be made as soon as possible after receipt of the scheduled hearing date. Except for those situations in which emergent problems arise at the last minute, no request for an adjournment will be entertained if received later than 12:00 noon on the Wednesday preceding the scheduled arbitration hearing date.
Unavailability of designated trial counsel is not cause for an adjournment for an arbitration hearing.
