    Domestic violence complaints and temporary restraining orders may also be filed in
    municipal court. These cases are forwarded to the Superior Court, where they are handled
    by Family Division.

    Most indictable complaints are also initially filed in municipal court. These cases are then
    sent to the Superior Court for handling. CJP Court (Central Judicial Processing Court) is
    presided over by Newark Municipal Court Chief Judge Alison Brown Jones (ext. 5870).
    It is supported by Criminal Division, the Public Defender and the Prosecutor’s Office. CJP
    arraigns all indictable cases for Essex County.

    The Municipal Mediation Program is available to all municipal courts. Volunteers from
    the community serve as mediators to assist parties in reaching a mutually acceptable
    agreement to resolve their dispute. Typical cases assigned to mediators involve family
    members, neighbors or friends. These cases can include disputes such as trespass,
    harassment, noise complaints, animal or pet complaints, or property disputes.

    Municipal court decisions may be appealed to the Superior Court. Municipal appeals are
    assigned to Criminal Judges on a rotating basis by the Criminal Records Manager. An
    appeal of a municipal court matter must be filed with the Court Administrator of the
    municipal court where the matter was originally heard, within 20 days after entry of
    judgement. Application must be made for a transcript of the court proceeding at the time of

Michele Bertran is the Ombudsman for the Essex Vicinage. The Ombudsman provides
confidential services to anyone who wants to complain about mistreatment or discrimination in the
courthouse. Complaints can be made in person, by telephone, mail or fax. Upon receiving a
complaint, the Ombudsman will first conduct an investigation and will then evaluate how to resolve
the problem. Most complaints can be resolved with an explanation or with a referral to an
appropriate formal disciplinary body. The Ombudsman will also follow-up on the matter to ensure
that all problems are addressed in a timely fashion. Finally, the Ombudsman will collect data about
all complaints from the public in order to make recommendations for the improvement of court
services and staff training.

Another function of the Office of the Ombudsman is to improve access to the courts. The
Ombudsman accomplishes this function by providing public information and by developing and
strengthening community relations. Moreover, the Ombudsman helps to ensure that everyone has
access to the courts including non-English speaking litigants and the unrepresented.

Information and Community Relations Center - Room 132                           693-5725/5744

The Ombudsman also supervises the Information and Community Relations Center. The Center
serves as a central point for finding informative literature and videos about the court and how it
functions. The Center also arranges educational court tours, community speaking engagements and
student internships.

Community Relations Liaisons in the Center answer questions about all court divisions - Civil,
Criminal, Family, General Equity as well as the Municipal Courts. Liaisons also answer questions
about court processes, procedures and special programs and will assist in making arrangements for
an interpreter or an accommodation for a disabled person. Although unable to provide legal advice
because court staff must remain neutral and impartial, the Center’s staff can provide information
about legal aid services and legal referral services.

The Ombudsman also supervises the Information Booth in the lobby of the New Courts Building.
The clerk at the Information Booth provides information about the entire court complex. The
Family Division located at 212 Washington Street also has an Information Center located in Room
109 on the first floor.
