The Supreme Court invites written comments on the 2004-07 reports of the Supreme Court rules and program committees published with this notice. In those reports, the committees (as listed below) make numerous recommendations to the Supreme Court for rule amendments and other non-rule administrative actions. As set forth in an earlier notice, the Court has staggered the reporting cycles of its rules committees, such that not all will be submitting their respective reports this year, though some of those have submitted emergent rule proposals for consideration.
The committees whose 2004-07 reports are here published for comment are as follows: (1) Committee on Complementary Dispute Resolution, (2) Criminal Practice Committee, (3) Family Practice Committee (with appendices), (4) Committee on Minority Concerns (with appendices), (5) Municipal Court Practice Committee, and (6) Committee on the Rules of Evidence.
Please send any comments on the Committees' proposed rule amendments or other recommendations in writing by Monday, April 16, 2007 to:
Philip S. Carchman, J.A.D.
Acting Administrative Director of the Courts
Hughes Justice Complex; P.O. Box 037
Trenton, New Jersey 08625-0037
Comments on the Committee reports and recommendations may also be submitted via Internet e-mail to the following address: Comments.Mailbox@judiciary.state.nj.us.
The Supreme Court will not consider comments submitted anonymously. Thus, those submitting comments by mail should include their name and address (and those submitting comments by e-mail should include their name and e-mail address). However, 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 his or her comments may be subject to public disclosure after the Court has acted on the Committee reports and supplemental reports.
