Municipal Judge

The Municipal Court is a local court created by state law, whose territory is confined to the municipality in which it is located. Practice and procedures are governed by New Jersey Court rules.

Each municipality appoints its own Municipal Court Judge. Other court staff includes the Court Administrator and Court Recording Clerk.

The Municipal Court receives and files all complaints signed by law enforcement officers and private citizens for violations, which occur within the Borough of Paulsboro. Types of cases include violations of state traffic laws, petty disorderly and disorderly persons offenses, and Borough Ordinance violations.

The Court is responsible for the scheduling of cases, collection of fines, record keeping and report dispositions to a variety of agencies, some of which include the New Jersey State Police and the Division of Motor Vehicles.

Court sessions are open proceedings and may be viewed by the public. There is no jury in a Municipal court proceeding. Testimony is taken from the complainant, defendant, and any witnesses and a decision is rendered by the judge based on the facts presented and the law.
