Courts in New Jersey
|More information on New Jersey's state courts:|
The courts in New Jersey include a state court system and two federal courts.
The Supreme Court is the court of last resort in the state. The court may hear appeals if the case involves a constitutional question, if a judge in the Appellate Division dissented, if capital punishment is ordered, if the court grants "certification" or if the case involves redistricting.
The appellate division is the intermediate appellate court in the state. Appellate division judges hear appeals from decisions of the trial courts, the Tax Court and state administrative agencies.
Courts of limited jurisdiction
Appeals from these courts go to the Third Circuit Court of Appeals.
