Court Rule 2:8-3. Motion for Summary Disposition
(a) Supreme Court. On an appeal taken to the Supreme Court as of right from a judgment of the Appellate Division, any party may move at any time following the service of the notice of appeal for a summary disposition of the appeal. Such motion shall be determined on the motion papers and on the briefs and record filed with the Appellate Division and may result in an affirmance, reversal or modification. The pendency of such motion shall toll the time for the filing of briefs and appendices on the appeal. The Supreme Court may summarily dispose of any appeal on its own motion at any time, and on such prior notice, if any, to the parties as the court directs.
(b) Appellate Division. Any party to an appeal may move the Appellate Division for summary disposition in accordance with R. 2:8-1(a). Such motion shall demonstrate that the issues on appeal do not require further briefs or full record. The motion may be filed at any time after filing of the notice of appeal but unless leave is otherwise granted not later than 25 days after the filing of respondents' briefs. The court may deny the motion; may grant it by affirming, reversing or modifying the judgment or order appealed from on the record before it or on such further record as it may direct; or may take such other action in respect of limitation of the issues or otherwise as it deems appropriate. The court may summarily dispose of any appeal on its own motion at any time, and on such notice, if any, to the parties as the court directs, provided that the merits have been briefed. A motion for summary disposition shall toll the time prescribed by these rules for further perfection of the appeal.
