1. Assignment Judge Can Designate Other Municipal Court Judges to Sign a Warrant. State v. Broom-Smith 201 NJ 229 (2010)

The Court affirms the Appellate Division's determination that N.J.S.A. 2B:12-6 and Rule 1:12-3, which address the designation of judges, were broad enough to authorize the Berkeley Township municipal judge to issue the search warrant for defendant's house in Dover Township under the circumstances presented in this case.

2. In Sussex County, no SLAP on DWS based on DWI. State v. White ____ NJ Super. ______ (Law Div. 2010) Sussex County, Docket No. 1904-BT-033744 Decided on January 26, 2010.

The term of imprisonment set forth in N.J.S.A. 39:3-40(f)(2) for a person whose license has been suspended for drunk driving may not be served in a Sheriff's Labor Assistance Program or other noncustodial program. Source: 200 N.J.L.J. 298
