Obtaining Discovery


Pursuant to the amendments to R.3:9-1, which were made effective on May 20, 2016, any discovery relating to a filed indictment will be available from the Prosecutor's Office within seven (7) days of the return or unsealing of that indictment.  R.3:9-1(a).

Effective January 1, 2019, criminal discovery will be available via the eDiscovery Portal.  All defense attorneys are encouraged to register and secure their discovery in that fashion.  All discovery uploaded to the eDiscovery Portal will be redacted.  Post-indictment, victim/witness identifiers can be secured by contacting the assigned/Vertical Teams assistant prosecutor.  In order to facilitate that process, a victim/witness identifiers request form can be utilized.  Please click here for a fillable version of the form:  Defense Request for Redacted Victim-Witness Identifiers

A sample Prosecutor response is attached here: Redacted Victim Identifiers to Defense

In Middlesex County, discovery can be obtained through our eDiscovery Portal at:  https://www.njediscovery.com

Directions for registering and requesting discovery:   eCDR Registration Manual
