How to File an Appeal

A person who disagrees with the decision of a Municipal Court may appeal. That appeal must be filed within 20 calendar days of the court's decision. Appeals from the Municipal Courts are heard at the county level in the Superior Court, Law Division. The Superior Court Judge reviews the transcript (produced from the audio recording of the trial) and any other evidence or legal papers from the trial and makes a decision regarding the case. New testimony or evidence are generally not admitted for the appeal. The Judiciary has prepared an information packet, " How to Appeal a Decision of a Municipal Court ", for persons wishing to appeal a Municipal Court decision.
