A Special Civil Party seeking any affirmative relief may, after the service of the pleading claiming such relief, move for a summary judgment or order on all or any part thereof or as to any defense. The Special Civil judgment or order sought shall be rendered forthwith if the pleadings, depositions, Answers to Interrogatories and admissions on file, together with the affidavits, if any, show that there is no genuine issue as to any material fact challenged and that the Special Civil moving party is entitled to a judgment or order as a matter of law. An issue of fact is genuine only if, considering the burden of persuasion at a Special Civil trial, the evidence submitted by the parties on the Special Civil motion, together with all legitimate inferences therefrom favoring the non-moving party, would require submission of the issue to the trier of fact. The New Jersey Special Civil Part shall find the facts and state its conclusions in accordance with R. 1:7-4. A summary judgment or order, interlocutory in character, may be rendered on any issue in the action (including the issue of liability) although there is a genuine factual dispute as to any other issue (including any issue as to the amount of damages). Subject to the provisions of R. 4:42-2 (judgment upon multiple claims), a summary judgment final in character may be rendered in respect of any portion of the damages claimed. In a New Jersey Special Civil Part summary judgment motion, the Special Civil moving party claims that some or all of the important facts of the case are not in dispute and therefore, that the law entitles the Special Civil moving party to a judgment on part or all of the case. Summary judgment motions are usually successful where there are no important issues of fact to be decided at a Special Civil trial and therefore, the Special Civil judge is able to decide the case before the Special Civil trial. If you face a New Jersey Special Civil Part summary judgment motion, given the complex nature of such Special Civil motions and frequent changes in the law and court rules, you should seek professional advice from a New Jersey Special Civil lawyer.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A SPECIAL CIVIL INTERLOCUTORY ORDER OR SPECIAL CIVIL INTERLOCUTORY JUDGMENT AND A SPECIAL CIVIL FINAL ORDER OR SPECIAL CIVIL FINAL JUDGMENT?
There are 2 types of Special Civil motions for reconsideration – motions for reconsideration of final judgments and final orders and motions for reconsideration of interlocutory judgments and interlocutory orders. A Special Civil order or Special Civil judgment may be either interlocutory or final. Special Civil interlocutory orders and Special Civil interlocutory judgments are not final – they are subject to change while a Special Civil case is actively litigated in the Special Civil part or before the case is resolved as to all parties and issues. Special Civil final orders and Special Civil final judgments typically decide a Special Civil case or issue in the Special Civil case fully and finally. The difference between Special Civil final and Special Civil interlocutory judgments and Special Civil final and Special Civil interlocutory orders is the timing in which to seek reconsideration before it is too late and the standard for deciding the different types of judgments and orders. A Special Civil motion for reconsideration of interlocutory orders may be made at any time until final judgment is entered in the Special Civil case in the Special Civil Court's discretion and in the interests of justice. The Special Civil court has the inherent power to be exercised in its sound discretion, to review, revise, reconsider and modify its interlocutory judgments and interlocutory orders at any time prior to the entry of a Special Civil final judgment. Reconsideration of final judgments or final orders must be made (filed) within 20 days of the entry of the Special Civil final judgment or Special Civil final order. The rules governing Special Civil final judgments and Special Civil final orders generally require that evidence must be newly discovered to be considered but that requirement does not apply to Special Civil interlocutory judgments and Special Civil interlocutory orders. But interlocutory orders and interlocutory judgments may be reconsidered under the interests of justice standard. That entitlement to change a prior Special Civil court ruling in the interests of justice and the 20 day time limit for making motions for reconsiderations of final orders and final judgments under a more difficult standard are what distinguish Special Civil interlocutory orders and Special Civil interlocutory judgments from Special Civil final orders and Special Civil final judgments.

WHAT IS A NEW JERSEY SPECIAL CIVIL PART MOTION TO VACATE DEFAULT?
A New Jersey Special Civil Part Motion To Vacate Default Judgment is a Special Civil party’s formal request, made by an application called a motion, to vacate the entry of a default entered against a Special Civil party. In New Jersey Special Civil Part cases, if a Special Civil defendant fails to file a written Special Civil Answer to the New Jersey Special Civil Part complaint, the Special Civil court clerk should automatically enter a Special Civil default on the Special Civil Part’s docket. If a Special Civil defendant is defaulted by the New Jersey Special Civil Part in a New Jersey Special Civil Part case, then no Special Civil trial will occur (unless the New Jersey Special Civil Part vacates the Special Civil default) and the Special Civil plaintiff has a certain amount of time from the date of the entry of default to file additional paperwork with the New Jersey Special Civil Part to seek a Special Civil default judgment against a Special Civil defendant. When a Special Civil party has a New Jersey Special Civil Part Default entered against them, to have their “day in court” they must normally file a New Jersey Special Civil Part Motion To Vacate Default and thereafter file a Special Civil Answer and have a trial or have their Special Civil case decided in the future by another motion filed in the New Jersey Special Civil Part. The Special Civil papers submitted with the Special Civil moving party’s motion are called “moving papers” and the Special Civil papers submitted in opposition to the New Jersey Special Civil Part motion are called Special Civil opposition papers. The date that the New Jersey Special Civil Part motion is scheduled to be heard is called its Special Civil motion hearing date or Special Civil return date or “hearing date”. If you want to file a New Jersey Special Civil Part Motion To Vacate Default, given the complex nature of such Special Civil motions and frequent changes in the law and court rules, you should seek professional advice from a Special Civil lawyer licensed to practice law in the State of New Jersey.

WHAT IS A NEW JERSEY SPECIAL CIVIL PART MOTION TO VACATE DEFAULT JUDGMENT?
A New Jersey Special Civil Part Motion To Vacate Default Judgment is a Special Civil party’s formal request, made by an application called a motion, to have some or all portions of a judgment removed from the New Jersey Special Civil Part’s records so that the Special Civil party against whom the judgment was entered has an opportunity to go to trial. A New Jersey Special Civil Part Motion To Vacate Default Judgment is not the end of the New Jersey Special Civil Part case – it is usually a new beginning.

The most common exception to a Special Civil party not having to ask for a new “day in court” after a New Jersey Special Civil Part default judgment is vacated occurs when the Special Civil party making the motion can prove that they paid the judgment (not to be confused with paying the debt that formed the basis of the judgment before the judgment was entered).

CAN I RELY ON NEW JERSEY SPECIAL CIVIL PART FORMS PROVIDED BY THE NEW JERSEY SPECIAL CIVIL PART COURT?
The New Jersey Special Civil Part usually provides certain types of Special Civil legal forms to the public and those forms are often very helpful. However, beware relying on New Jersey Special Civil Part forms provided by the New Jersey Special Civil Part court – the forms are often deceptively simple, while Special Civil Part cases often are much more complex than they first appear to be. There is simply no substitute for a competent Special Civil attorney licensed to practice law in New Jersey who has experience handling New Jersey Special Civil Part cases. Special Civil forms don’t talk and Special Civil forms and their directions rarely, if ever, cover every possible situation, set of facts or legal issue that may arise in a New Jersey Special Civil Part case.

CAN I HANDLE A NEW JERSEY SPECIAL CIVIL CASE MYSELF?
Many people can and do successfully handle New Jersey Special Civil cases, from filing the first paperwork to the collection of a New Jersey Special Civil judgment. However, many other people also make mistakes that lead to the dismissal of their New Jersey Special Civil cases or that result in the entry of a New Jersey Special Civil money judgment against them.

• New Jersey Special Civil fees often change

• New Jersey Special Civil court forms available on websites may not cover every situation you may face in court
• each New Jersey Special Civil case has its own particular legal issues and therefore, its own challenges

• it is not uncommon for judges to get very frustrated by an unrepresented party’s lack of preparation or ignorance of the facts or law of the New Jersey Special Civil case.
• a court has the power to punish unprepared parties, such as by throwing their New Jersey Special Civil case out of court or limiting what they can present at the New Jersey Special Civil trial.
• New Jersey has many published cases, laws, regulations, court rules and rules of evidence that can be very tricky to understand and that can be used to prevent you from doing much of what you want to do at the New Jersey Special Civil trial.
• it is very common for courts to refuse to allow a party to use or refer to documents or items at the New Jersey Special Civil trial that the person themselves never prepared. Often parties stumble into New Jersey Special Civil with a video, photograph, bill or affidavit or other form of written statement, thinking they are going to use it as proof that they lost money or that they are not responsible for someone else’s damages, only to have a judge tell the parties that it is not going to even consider such items or documents.
• without the proper preparation, items and documents may never be considered by the New Jersey Special Civil. Also, if there are any legal issues to be dealt with at the New Jersey Special Civil trial, you must be prepared to argue them, which may require you to refer to New Jersey Special Civil court rules, evidence rules, laws, regulations or published cases.
• you cannot show up at the New Jersey Special Civil expecting the Special Civil judge hearing your New Jersey Special Civil case to explain court rules, evidence rules, court procedure or the details of the law that applies to your New Jersey Special Civil case. The Special Civil judge hearing your New Jersey Special Civil case is not permitted to give you legal advice.

It is important to remember that even if you have a Special Civil attorney, you could lose your New Jersey Special Civil case.
