The Court falls under the jurisdiction of the State Administrative Office of the Court (AOC), supervised by Assignment Judge Thomas L. Weisenbeck, JSC, of the Superior Court of Morristown. The AOC audits court activities and procedures, and requires that the Municipal Court staff members prepare and submit reports to be used as the basis for the Annual Comparison Statistical Report, which is issued by the AOC.
