Extension of Time to File a Note of Issue for THE CITY PARTS in SUPREME KINGS

Effective June 1, 2017

Whether by motion or stipulation an application to extend the time to file a Note of issue may only be granted under the following circumstances:

1 The order must be accompanied by a final and definitive enumeration of Discovery which remains outstanding;

  1. Any order which grants the extension must contain language of preclusion or striking of a pleading for failure to strictly adhere to the Discovery scheduled therein;
  2. Outside of extraordinary circumstances, the time within which to file the Note of Issue should not be extended for more than 60 days.

Ordinarily, no further extensions of time to file a Note of Issue should be granted.  If a party fails to adhere to the strict schedule provided in the prior order of extension, the conditional language of that prior order should have resolved the issue.  However, if good cause is shown for failure to comply, it will remain within the sound discretion of the Referee/JHO to permit the forthwith filing of a Note of Issue while concurrently directing that limited Discovery be completed thereafter.

2017 Rockland County Purge

“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. Plaintiff, you must notify ALL PARTIES and bring such notification with you to be filed with the Clerk of the Part. Failure to appear will cause the action to be deemed abandoned and dismissed.
