I am not quite sure if this is what you are asking, but if I have misunderstood you, please clarify with a reply to expert. The court proceedings in NJ, with the exception of juvenile
courts, are all open to the public and anyone can sit in those courts unless for some very good cause the court has closed the proceedings (which is done very rarely). Thus, unless a person is a witness in the case going on in the court and the court has ordered sequestration of witnesses or unless the person is disturbing the court proceeding, courts are open to the general public as part as the open access to justice
and as such people can go sit in any court they choose to observe any proceedings they choose to observe.
If one is denied access, they can file a suit for a civil rights violation in either the state or federal courts for being denied access to a public proceeding.
