NOTICE TO THE BAR

SUPREME COURT OF NEW JERSEY

            It is ORDERED, pursuant to N.J. Const. Art. VI, sec. 2 par. 3, that the provisions of Rule 1:5-2 ("Manner of Service") of the Rules Governing the Court of the State of New Jersey are supplemented and relaxed so as to provide that when service of papers referred to in Rule 1:5-1(a)  (“Service; When Required – Civil Actions”) is required to be made upon the clerk of the court because, despite diligent effort, no address for the party is known, the filing of the papers with the clerk shall be deemed to satisfy that service requirement and there need be no separate service upon the clerk.

For the Court,
Stuart Rabner
Chief Justice

Dated: November 17, 2009
