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.

 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.

CMS & Calendar Sync – eLaw subscribers have the option to automatically synchronize their eWatch account with an existing case management system or calendar.

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.
