  • One at One: Remote Court Appearances During the Crisis

Today’s Issue:

Can the New Jersey Superior Court force a litigant to proceed via remote appearance?

Answer:

In most cases, yes. Most New Jersey Court events may be conducted remotely, even over the objection of a party. Exceptions exist in certain criminal and family matters, as well as in matters relating to the adjudication of an individual’s incapacity, for which the parties must consent.
