Muni-mail – Protection of Civil Rez is Limited – State v. Lacey

[08-30-10 – 11:00 am] In Friday morning’s Appellate Division holding in State v. Lacey, the Court ruled that the protections afforded by a civil reservation as part of a guilty plea are limited to those civil actions where the plaintiff seeks to recover money damages. It does not apply to other collateral, civil actions where, for example, the State or other governmental entity is the plaintiff.

This case is of particular importance in criminal cases in both the municipal and Superior Courts.
