Counterclaim in municipal court?

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?

    The above is general information only and is not legal advice. The information provided does not form an attorney-client relationship, and should not be relied upon to take or refrain from taking any action. I am not your attorney until we sign a retainer agreement.


  2. I agree, I don't see it.
