The NYS Office of Court Administration (OCA) is currently undergoing a change in the way they provide information to the Bar and eLaw. The format and structure of such data has been changed in a way that has caused a delay in the eLaw and court systems which process the data in Westchester Supreme. Please be advised that eLaw, the company that has been awarded the best docketing and calendar software in New York for the last six years by the readers of the New York Law Journal, has made the changes and is ready to go with all Westchester Supreme data.
For those attorneys that rely on other sources to get up-to-date Westchester appearance and decision information that is a month behind, please contact eLaw and we can track those matters for free for the life of the case(s) and possibly sync the court information to your case management system, Outlook® or Google Calendar™ or iPhones® or Android™ calendars.
Please call 973 642-1440 x 8 for additional details.
Anyone having a motion on the calendar in Room 809 the week of July 17th for the second time and being fully briefed should be advised that they MUST be prepared to make a representation in WRITING of the date in trial one. Forms are available from the court attorney.
Please note the clerks at the courthouses cannot accept papers filed for the purposed of commencing an action or special proceeding. Papers improperly filed with the clerks at the courthouses will be returned to the litigant. Additionally, the RJI must be filed with the county clerk’s office the courthouse clerks will not accept copies of the RJI without the County Clerk’s certification that the filing fee has been paid. The County Clerk requests that the RJI and fee not be accompanied by papers for submission to the court.

“June 16, 2017 Rockland County Purge” Just like the court recently did in Kings, Rockland is following suit. Here is the notice, if eLaw can help in any way including sending a per diem to cover the calendar, let me know The administrative judge’s office has directed that “these cases need to be brought in before a Judge to see why there has been a delay in completing the case. If the case has been marked stayed, please have the attorney verify that the stay is still in effect and that the case has not been disposed in Bankruptcy Court.” All parties are to appear on June 16th, 2017 , at 10:00 a.m. in Courtroom #1 on the fourth floor.
