NJ Supreme Court Chief Forms Advisory Panel

The chief justice of New Jersey’s Supreme Court has formed an advisory panel that will seek ways to expedite civil litigation matters.Chief Justice Stuart Rabner announced the panel’s formation Wednesday. It also will develop proposals to improve the state’s expedited jury trial program.

The 34-member group will be chaired by Camden County Superior Court Assignment Judge Faustino Fernandez-Vina and attorney Thomas Curtin.

Rabner says the panel’s goal is to “achieve speedier justice at a lower cost” without sacrificing due process and fairness.

As part of their discussions, the committee will make recommendations on what cases are appropriate for expedited civil action practices and what type of pretrial procedures are needed. They also will consider whether court rules need to be amended or new rules adopted for such a program.
