New Jersey Revised Statutes § 30:4-80.7 - Review Of Validity Of Lien; Discharge

30:4-80.7. Review of validity of lien; discharge
2. Any person affected in any manner, whether directly or indirectly, by any lien filed hereunder, and desiring to examine into the validity thereof or the facts and circumstances surrounding the entry thereof, may do so in an action brought in the court wherein the judgment of commitment of the patient was made. In the case of a voluntary patient, an action may be brought in the Superior Court. The action shall be brought against the institution claiming the lien, and the court may proceed in the action in a summary manner or otherwise and enter such judgment as it may deem appropriate.

Any person desiring to secure immediate discharge of any lien may deposit with the court cash in sufficient amount to cover the amount of the lien or post a bond in an amount and with sureties to be approved by said court. Upon proper notice of this fact being given to the institution claiming the lien, a satisfaction of said lien shall be filed forthwith with the county clerk or register of deeds and mortgages as the case may be.
