    More facts are needed as to whether an application can be made to the court for a dismissal. Based on the limited amount of facts provided, the Court could have provided a new court date to you when you originally plead "not guilty." In addition, the Court could have forwarded a court notice to an incorrect address. Or, your ticket somehow is "lost" in the system. In any event, it is in your best interests to go to the police station, post bail, and thereafter you will obtain a new court....

    Under the leaving the scene statute, there is a permissive inference that the person who owns the car was driving the car. Please have your friend contact an experienced criminal attorney.

  3. NJ job application asks if I have ever been convicted of or pled guilty or no contest to any crime or criminal offense? DWI

    To answer your question as to whether it is a crime or criminal offense, no it is not. However, a review of the job application question needs to be looked at. In New Jersey, a DWI is considered a motor vehicle violation. At the municipal court level, traffic summonses, township ordinances, and offenses (disorderly person, petty disorderly persons) are heard. Notwithstanding aggravating factor(s), none of these matters are considered criminal.

    Based on the information you provided, an attorney who practices in litigation can assist you. To vacate a judgment the following must be shown to the Court (1) what is your excuse for not answering the complaint; (2) what is your defense to the complaint? It is very much helpful if you vacate a judgment within a year after the final judgment was entered. If you ask the court to vacate the judgment after a year, the standard is much higher. Good luck.

    With the information provided, if you previously filed a notice of motion and was granted the relief that you requested, the defendant can ask the court to review its decision in one of two ways; a motion for reconsideration and/or motion to vacate the order. In the alternative, if there is a current motion pending before the court, the defendant can respond to your motion, and also, if acceptable, submit a cross motion. Thereafter, you can respond to his answer.

    Please look at the court rules for the friv. litigation procedure. The rule is R.1:4-8 ( I think). Prior to filing a notice of motion for sanctions, you have to send a correspondence to the attorney advising them why his/her pleading, motion, etc. is frivolous (this provides a time for the adversary to consider withdrawing, hence a safe harbor). After "x" amount of days, if the pleading, motion, etc. is not withdrawn, after the Court makes enters a final judgment/order, dismissing your...

    I agree with the previous attorney. In addition, and more importantly, the attorneys could have allowed in statements and exhibits because it may be because of their legal strategy. For there to be collusion or insinuate the same, you must have more evidence.

    It would best serve you to schedule a court date and bring in your insurance card for the prosecutor to see. If acceptable, the prosecutor can dismiss the ticket and by statute you only have to pay the court costs.

    If you need free legal assistance there are several legal aid groups in New Jersey. If it is a criminal matter, you can always apply to the public defenders office.

    The registration is a small bump in the road for the creditor. More information is needed as to whether your property has a mortgage on the property, prior liens, and how much is the judgment against you is for.
