The Conference of Civil Presiding Judges has prepared a cumulative listing of the results of discussions by the Conference of a variety of civil best practices issues and questions presented to the Conference by members of the bar, civil judges and civil court staff. This cumulative listing represents the Conference of Civil Presiding Judges’ consensus as to how the various issues and questions should be handled statewide, subject to the individual judge’s discretion exercised within the context of the facts and legal issues presented in specific cases. The cumulative listing is updated following each meeting of the Conference, and can be found at the Judiciary’s Internet website. The address is www.judiciary.state.nj.us.
Please note that the items contained in the cumulative listing do not carry the weight of court rules or administrative directives; they are merely intended as guidelines to assist the court and the bar as civil best practices are implemented statewide.
