N.J. courts will resume on limited basis on Monday, jury trials delayed until May 31

By David Wildstein, April 24 2020 11:15 am

The New Jersey courts will resume civil arbitration and matrimonial early settlement panels on April 27, but the Supreme Court has extended the suspension of jury trials, landlord and tenant trials and grand jury proceedings until May 31.

Municipal court sessions are set to resume on May 11 by phone or video, and with consent of the patties municipal court sessions may resume on Monday.

Attorney disciplinary hearings and fee arbitration “in relatively straightforward matters” are set to resume on May 11.   The court has suspended the filing of notices of tort claims and the depositions or appearances of physicians, nurses and healthcare workers have been suspended through the end of May.

The Supreme Court announced that any foreclosure motions or judgments received after March 1 will not be reviewed “until further notice.”  New Jersey’s suspension of residential tenant convictions continue.
