Borough of Carlstadt Municipal Court
This court of limited jurisdiction largely hears matters involving alleged traffic violations (DUI/DWI, speeding, careless driving, reckless driving, improper passing, failure to report an accident, etc.), as well as disorderly persons cases for shoplifting, simple assault, theft, domestic violence and others. The court also hears matters involving alleged municipal code violations.
When in session, the court is presided over by a single municipal court judge. Trials in this court are called “bench” trials, meaning that there is no jury, and the judge is both the finder of fact, in addition to the legal gatekeeper.
