What is a motion to suppress evidence?

Whenever the police take an action without an arrest or search warrant, they must be able to justify that action under the New Jersey and United States constitutions.  A person accused of a crime can challenge any arrest, confession or seizure of evidence in a proceeding called a motion to suppress evidence.

What is the “unsafe driver” law?  Does “unsafe driving” carry points? And is there a surcharge?

How do the new “pay-to-play” rules work?

The Governor issued an executive order limiting the political activities of state goverment contractors.  The order limits the amounts that contractors can donate to campaigns.  The order limits contractors’ ability to raise funds for campaigns and political parties.  The devil is in the details.
