1. Person Living in Home as Guest could be Household Member under Domestic Violence Act. S.Z. v M.C. 617 NJ Super. 627 (App. Div. 2011)

The court reverse the trial court and find jurisdiction under the "household member" provision of the Prevention of Domestic Violence Act in a situation where the male defendant was a guest in the male plaintiff's home, living with plaintiff and his wife and children for seven months. While living with plaintiff, defendant allegedly climbed a ladder placed against the home to peep through a window at plaintiff coming out of the show the court. Ten months after being thrown out of the home, defendant allegedly follow the court plaintiff and planted a secret camera in plaintiff's truck to surreptitiously record him. Although the two men never had a traditional familial, romantic or sexual relationship, the court find that neither the incompatible sexual orientations.

2. Unsigned Confession can be used to Refresh Witness during Trial. State v. Gore 205 NJ 363 (A-77-09)

State v. Cleveland, 6 N.J., 316 (1951), is superseded by the New Jersey Rules of Evidence. Rule 803(c)(5) permits the admission of a defendant's unsigned and unacknowledged transcribed statement, used to refresh a witness' memory as past recollection recorded, provided there is no objection and all foundational requirements, including Rule 803(b)(1), are satisfied. Although the trial court erroneously permitted the formal confession statement to be moved into evidence after the record had closed, plain error does not exist because there is no reasonable likelihood that admission of the statement caused the jury to reach a conclusion that it otherwise would not have reached.
