Tyrone Barnes v. Lydell B. Sherrer, Administrator at Northern State Prison

06-24-08 A-5520-06T1

In this opinion, we describe the proper procedures for filing an inmate lost property claim, which should be processed administratively, rather than through an action in the Special Civil Part. Because the procedures were not followed in this case, we remand the matter with instructions that administrative regulations be followed, and we retain jurisdiction.
