NJ Rev Stat § 34:1-70 (2013) What's This?

34:1-70. Recovery of penalties, procedure
34:1-70. Except as otherwise in this Title specifically provided, a proceeding for the recovery of a penalty for the violation of any provision of this Title shall be by a civil action in the name of the commissioner, to be instituted in the Superior Court or a municipal court of the municipality, where the offense was committed.

If a corporation violates the provisions of this Title and if, according to the practice of the court in which the action is brought, service of process cannot be made upon it in the county where the offense was committed, then such service may be made upon the manager, superintendent, foreman or person in charge of the business where such offense was committed. If an individual violating the provisions of this Title is the owner or operator of the business wherein the offense was committed, and if he does not reside in the county where such offense was committed, service of process against him may be made upon the manager, superintendent, foreman or person in charge of the business.

If an individual is committed under execution against his body, he shall not be discharged under the insolvent debtors law of the State, but shall only be discharged by the court issuing the execution, or by the Superior Court, when it is satisfied that further confinement will not result in the payment of the judgment and costs.
