Supreme Court Committees -- Second Supplemental Report of the
1998-2000 Special Civil Part Practice Committee

The 1998-2000 Report of the Special Civil Part Practice Committee (“Practice Committee”) contained a number of recommendations relating to Commonwealth Realty Management, Inc. v. Harris, 155 N.J. 212 (1998). The Supreme Court, in part in response to comments received on that report after its publication, referred those Harris-related recommendations back to the Practice Committee for further consideration. Having completed that further consideration, the Practice Committee now has submitted a set of revised recommendations, in the form of a Second Supplemental Report (“Supplemental Report”). That Supplemental Report (including related appendices) is published here for comment.

Note: The Report was prepared and submitted by the 1998-2000 Practice Committee even though submitted during the tenure of the 2000-2002 Practice Committee.

The Supreme Court invites written comments on this Supplemental Report and the recommendations that it contains. Please send any such comments by March 1, 2001 to Hon. Richard J. Williams, Administrative Director of the Courts, Hughes Justice Complex, P.O. Box 037, Trenton, New Jersey 08625-0037. Comments may also be submitted by e-mail to the following address: Comments must include the author’s name and address.

Comments submitted in response to this notice will be maintained in confidence if the author specifically requests confidentiality; in the absence of such a request, the author’s identity and comments may be subject to public disclosure.
