This notice is to advise of the following corrections to the Supreme Court’s July 19, 2012 Omnibus Rule Amendment Order that adopted a number of amendments to the New Jersey Rules of Court, with those amendments effective September 4, 2012:

• Rule 2:9-6 (“Supersedeas Bond; Exceptions”) — The amended rule inadvertently omitted the following two sentences at the end of paragraph (c) that had been adopted in the prior rule amendment cycle: “The notice of appeal in a bail forfeiture appeal shall be accompanied by proof of compliance with this rule. Such proof shall be provided by affidavit, unless the court otherwise orders.” That text should still appear in the rule. Additionally, the following should still appear as part of the source note: “paragraph (c) amended July 21, 2011 to be effective September 1, 2011.”

• Canon 7, Code of Judicial Conduct — The caption of Canon 7 should still read “A Judge Shall Refrain from Political Activity,” not “A Judge Should Refrain from Political Activity” as included in the omnibus order. Additionally, the comma that was inadvertently added after “political party dinners” in section A(4) of that Canon should be deleted.
