JOSEPH ARUANNO, APPELLANT,
NEW JERSEY STATE PAROLE BOARD, RESPONDENT.
On appeal from the Superior Court of New Jersey, Law Division, Mercer County, MER-L-765-05.
NOT FOR PUBLICATION WITHOUT THE APPROVAL OF THE APPELLATE DIVISION
Submitted May 29, 2007
Before Judges Seltzer and C.L. Miniman.
Plaintiff Joseph Aruanno appealed from an order entered on May 26, 2006, in which the trial court judge denied plaintiff's motion to reinstate his Complaint because plaintiff failed to provide sufficient proof that the defendants were properly served. The judge also observed that "plaintiff's effort to appeal administrative actions is governed by the appellate courts pursuant to R. 2:7-1 and Fisher v. State Parole Bd., 303 N.J. Super. 229 (App. Div. ) [affirmed 154 N.J. 85 (1008)]." In other words, an appeal from a decision of a State administrative agency such as the Parole Board must be filed with the Appellate Division, not the trial court.
Plaintiff filed a Case Information Statement with us and a brief, but he did not provide us with an appendix of the proceedings below. As a consequence, his statements respecting the procedural history of the matter and the relevant facts are without record support. After carefully reviewing the materials before us in the light of the written arguments advanced by the plaintiff, we conclude that the arguments presented by plaintiff are without sufficient merit to warrant discussion in this opinion, R. 2:11-3(e)(1) (E), and we affirm substantially for the reasons expressed by the trial judge in his written order.
