Again, that is nicely written, but it appears to me that Glenn A. Grant's role as Administrative Director of the New Jersey Courts is advisory. I see nothing to suggest that he has any specific authority to force a Superior Court judge to comply with these rules. I suppose that might be different if Chief Justice Stuart Rabner specifically backed him on a particular issue. AFAIK, Rabner has been silent on this issue, and I am skeptical that will change. As CJack wrote, the directive could certainly be used as evidence against the practices of a judge in a lawsuit, but I don't think that an applicant would enjoy much success in using it on his own to pressure a sitting judge to expedite his or her application. I'd be happy to be wrong on this.
