What Claims Cannot Be Filed in Special Civil Part?

Question and Answer

What Claims Cannot Be Filed in Special Civil Part?

  • Claims arising from professional malpractice (for example, alleged malpractice by a doctor, dentist or lawyer).
  • Claims for support or alimony from a marital or domestic dispute.
  • Claims arising from a probate matter.

Please remember that if you believe you are entitled to damages greater than $20,000, but still wish to sue in Special Civil, you give up your right to recover damages over $20,000. The additional money cannot be claimed later in a separate lawsuit.
