Supervising Special Civil Part Judge, Hon. Joseph G. Monaghan, wishes to advise the Bar that he is available to any litigant who would like to schedule a settlement conference on any Special Civil Part matter – whether it be Special Civil Part (DC); Small Claims (SC) or a Landlord Tenant (LT) matter. This opportunity is open to all cases including self-represented litigants. If your adversary is represented by counsel, you must communicate with your adversary prior to contacting the court. If your adversary is self-represented, you can contact the court without first calling your adversary, for the sole purpose of requesting the conference. To schedule a conference, you need only contact Judge Monaghan’s chambers at (201) 221-0700 (25465). Be prepared to provide the name of the case; docket number; and telephone numbers of the attorneys and/or litigants (cell numbers are usually the most productive). A settlement conference will be scheduled thereafter.
