Counterclaim in municipal court?

Asked over 1 year ago - Newark, NJ

Can a counterclaim be filed in municipal court? For example, if you are cited for a barking dog and you have proof that it was your neighbor's, can you get monetary damages from the municipality for the hassle of having to appear in court?
