eLaw Header

Possible Dismissal of Cases on May 9th:

dismissalRecently, eLaw received a notice from the Civil Term of the New York State Supreme Court in Kings County indicating that it has calendared for administrative dismissal all actions commenced prior to January 1, 2016, wherein no activity has been reported after September 30, 2016 and no future date has been scheduled for a court appearance.

There will be a calendar call in Room 224 at 2:00 on May 9th. The Court has not provided a court calendar of what cases might get dismissed. However, we can run a query against your case list and see what possible cases might fall into the court’s notice. If you want us to do this for you, please contact me and we will be happy to help you. Once you know what cases this relates to, you can file a Notice of Intent to prosecute/defend or a stipulation agreeing to restore the case to the calendar prior to Monday May 1, 2017 with the Motion Support Office.

 ePer Diem

Have you heard? eLaw now offers a daily attorney service to handle a wide variety of matters in both New York and New Jersey courts. ePer Diem was launched to help ensure you never miss an appearance!

All appearances are handled professionally and with zealous representation by experienced attorneys. And eLaw will monitor the results of your appearance so that you promptly receive a report in your eLaw account.

What are clients saying about ePer Diem?…

The service has been excellent! We have been using [ePer Diem for] several months and could not be happier. We had a rush the other day when we realized we did not have an attorney going to a Motion, and we called Jamie at 9:20 for a 9:30 motion in New York County and your office handled it with no problems at all. The reports we receive give us details on exactly what happened at the appearance. We could not be happier!”

To learn more or to schedule service, call the ePer Diem Hotline: 212-209-3354. Orders can also be placed online, via your eLaw account.

NEW NOTE

Motor Vehicle Special Trial Part

Effective March 27, 2017:

As part of the court’s Motor Vehicle Initiative, Justice Elizabeth Taylor will preside over a newly created Motor Vehicle Special Trial Part (Motor Vehicle STP), which will be comprised of automobile cases that are 12 months post-note of issue or older.

Motor vehicle cases that are currently assigned to Justice Doris Gonzalez will remain with Justice Gonzalez and will not be transferred to Justice Taylor. However, Justice Gonzalez will not be receiving any new motor vehicle cases.

In an effort to centralize the operations of the court’s STP Program, Justices Gonzalez and Taylor will continue to occupy adjoining courtrooms (711 and 710 respectively).

Contemporaneous to the creation of the Motor Vehicle STP is the commencement of a program to expedite decisions in pending “serious injury” threshold motions.

Counsel are cautioned that all cases assigned to the Motor Vehicle STP are deemed trial ready and may be sent out to trial as early as the first conference before Justice Taylor.
