Memorandum of Law Detailing New Access to Court Records Rule

[9/15/09 8:30 pm] On September 1st, the Supreme Court replaced Rule 1:38 with a comprehensive new procedure that will provide an administrative framework for access to the records of the judiciary by members of the bar, the press and the public. The new Rule, together with the New Jersey common law, will exclusively control future access to judicial records as the Open Public Records Act does not apply to the judiciary.

The Hon. Roy McGeady, PJMC (Bergen Vicinage) has prepared a comprehensive memorandum of law that explains how the newly revised Rule 1:38-1 et seq. has been organized.

Our sincere thanks to Judge McGeady for making this memorandum available.
