Emergency Orders

Effective immediately all parties filing "Emergency" Ex-Parte applications must do so in person and must wait in Room 140 while the application is reviewed, processed and returned from Chambers. The application must be accompanied by an "Emergency Affidavit." which does not pray for the underlying relief requested but rather addresses:

1) why the application must be entertained forthwith, and
2) why the application could not have been brought to the court's attention earlier

Requests for Emergency processing will not be entertained unless submitted in person by the requesting attorney.


Note of Issue Filing Procedures

Step 1:
Notes of Issue should be filed and paid for in Room 106 of the County Clerk’s Office.

Step 2:
Deposit 1 copy of Note of Issue (with receipt stamp) in the Trial Term basket in Room 140.

** When filing an RJI and Note of Issue together, 1 copy of RJI (with receipt stamp) must also be deposited in the Ex-Parte basket.

When filing a Note of Issue on an action which is disposed, the filing party must attach a copy of an order restoring the action. If there is no restoral order, the Note of Issue cannot be processed.
