When Police do not Sign Ticket or Summons in New Jersey

It was held in State v. Brennan, 229 N.J. Super. 342 (App. Div. 1988) that when a police officer neglects to sign a summons and complaint within the statute of limitations period, that failure constitutes a fatal defect to the ability of the State to proceed. However, Brennan was overruled by State v. Fisher, 180 N.J. 462 (2004) which held that an officer may correct a technically invalid ticket by signing it even after the limitations period. Therefore, an unsigned ticket generally does not mean that your ticket will be automatically dismissed.
