Orange NJ Municipal Court

The Municipal Court has jurisdiction over cases within their territorial jurisdiction, including violations of municipal ordinances, violations of motor vehicle and traffic laws, disorderly persons offenses, petty disorderly persons offenses, and other non-indictable offenses except where exclusive jurisdiction is given to the Superior Court.

More serious cases are turned over to the Essex County Prosecutor in Newark. Municipal Courts in New Jersey are created by legislation pursuant to the state constitution, Article VI, Section 1, paragraph 1. They were established through the passage of N.J.S.A 2A: 8-1et seq. Municipal Courts are Courts of record.
