Rahway Municipal Court
About New Jersey Municipal Courts
There are 530 Municipal Courts in New Jersey, in which are filed 6.5 million cases each year. These cases generally fall into three categories: minor criminal offenses (like simple assault and writing bad checks), violations of municipal ordinances (like dogs barking and building code violations), and traffic and speeding tickets. Sometimes, more serious criminal cases are filed in a Municipal Court at first, but they are eventually referred to County Superior Courts instead. Each court only handles cases that occurred within the boundaries of the city or town served by the court. Because New Jersey Municipal Courts have jurisdiction over the most common types of cases, if you experience the New Jersey legal system, either as a defendant, a victim, or a witness, it will probably be through a Municipal Court.
