The report recommends the court approve a mandatory pilot program for all Track 1 and Track 2 cases (which include property and contract disputes and insurance suits) that focuses on streamlining pre-trial procedures and limiting some in-court proceedings.


The New Jersey Civil Justice Institute is hosting a teleforum on the report with Supreme Court Committee member Russell Deyo, the retired Vice President and General Counsel of Johnson & Johnson. The call will be held on Wednesday, May 21 from 11:00 AM to noon.
