NJCJI’s Appellate Program

While this newsletter often focuses on NJCJI’s efforts in the legislature, we are also keenly attuned to what is going on in the court system. In fact, NJCJI is the only organization that systematically reviews every case taken up by the state’s Appellate Division courts and the New Jersey Supreme Court to determine what impact each case might have on the state’s civil justice system.

NJCJI can often provide or coordinate amicus curiae briefs in cases that have broader civil justice implications that the parties cannot fully brief. Amicus curiae is a Latin phrase literally translated as “friend of the court.” It is the name for a brief filed with the court by someone who is not a party to the case.

To date, NJCJI has assisted with or participated in more than a dozen separate cases at the appellate and supreme court levels. Click here to read more about NJCJI’s appellate work.
