Yesterday, New Jersey’s District Court Chief Judge, Jerome B. Simandle, released a Notice to the Bar regarding proposed local court rule changes. The proposed rule changes primarily deal with Social Security matters. The proposed rule changes are the recommendations of the Court’s Local Social Security Rule Committee. The proposed rule changes primarily deal with the filing of briefs and pleadings in the era of electronic filing. (Electronic filing is required in Federal Court matters.) The committee believes that the proposed changes will aid the parties in reaching an amicable resolution in an efficient manner. The recommendations include a relaxation of some of the deadlines for briefs and other pleadings. Members of the public and members of the bar are encouraged to submit comments to the proposed rule change. The deadline for submitting comments to the proposed rule changes is June 8, 2012. All comments on the proposed rule changes should be delivered to:
