Responsibilities


The Municipal Courts in New Jersey are Courts of limited jurisdiction, having responsibility for motor vehicle violations and parking tickets, disorderly person offenses (for example, simple assault and harassment) and municipal ordinances (such as building code violations, noise complaints). A Municipal Court usually only has jurisdiction over cases that occur within the municipality.
