NOTICE TO THE BAR

SUPREME COURT RULES COMMITTEE REPORTS -
PUBLICATION FOR COMMENT

The Supreme Court invites written comments on the 2008-2010 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 approximately half submit their respective reports each year.

The committees whose 2008-2010 reports are here published for comment are as follows: (1) Civil Practice Committee, (2) Professional Responsibility Rules Committee, (3) Special Civil Part Practice Committee, and (4) Committee on the Tax Court.

Some of the appendices referenced in the reports may not be included in this publication; copies of any omitted appendices are available on request.  The reports are also available for downloading on the Judiciary’s Internet web site at http://www.judiciary.state.nj.us/reports2010/index.htm.

Please send any comments on the Committees’ proposed rule amendments or other recommendations in writing by Wednesday, April 14, 2010 to:

Glenn A. Grant, J.A.D.
Acting Administrative Director of the Courts
