How Does The New York Supreme Court Work?

The New York Supreme Court is the trial court of general jurisdiction in the State Unified Court System. Although the court has unlimited jurisdiction in both civil and criminal cases, it typically only hears cases that are outside the jurisdiction of lower courts of limited authority. In fact, with the exception of New York City, the Supreme Court primarily serves as the court of civil jurisdiction, with the majority of criminal cases handled by the County Court.

The New York Supreme Court is different from its equivalents in other states for two distinct reasons: first, the Supreme Court functions as a trial court and not the highest appellate court in the state. The court of last resort in New York is the Court of Appeals. Second, although the New York Supreme Court is a trial court, it does not function as an aggregation of separate courts sitting in several counties or judicial districts of the state. Rather, it sits as a single great tribunal of general statewide jurisdiction. As such, the Supreme Courts in each of New York’s 62 counties are basically branches of a single unit.

Cases within the jurisdiction of the Supreme Court include:

  • Unlimited monetary claims beyond the jurisdiction of lower courts
  • Exclusive jurisdiction over matrimonial matters such as divorce and annulment
  • Equitable claims such as injunctions, contract rescission, declaratory judgment actions, and specific performance
  • Exclusive jurisdiction over Article 78 proceedings—that is, claims against an officer or body seeking to overturn an official resolution on the grounds that it was unreasonable, arbitrary, and capricious or inconsistent with the law
  • For New York City Supreme Courts, criminal jurisdiction in felony offenses

Generally speaking, the Supreme Courts in New York have no jurisdiction over:

  • Claims against the state government
  • Cases under federal law including bankruptcy cases, copyright and patent proceedings, federal crimes, and personal damage matters filed under the federal antitrust laws
  • Administrative cases involving administrative agencies
  • Matters involving questions of law

The Supreme Court has established specialized units to serve varying functions. For instance, the court’s appellate division operates as the intermediate appellate court in the state. The Commercial Division of the Supreme Court focuses on commercial litigation proceedings and is often referred to as the Business Court.

The Supreme Court System is divided into thirteen judicial districts: one district serving Long Island, five districts corresP. O.nding to the five boroughs of New York City, and seven upstate districts, each encompassing about five and eleven counties.

The Court Administrator is resP. O.nsible for supervising and managing the trial court outside New York City. In New York City, an administrator, usually a judge, is assigned to supervise each major court. The Court Administrators (Administrative Judges) usually establish individual assignment systems to ensure a streamlined court administrative process. The Chief Administrator usually authorizes a random selection method that must be followed by clerks when assigning filed cases to judges.

Judges of New York Supreme Courts are titled Justices. The judicial P. O.sition is filled by election following nominations by nomination conventions in each judicial district. In actuality, the nomination process is partisan, with P. O.litical parties influencing and restricting the nomination to candidates that have received party approval. Cross-endorsements by different P. O.litical parties are common but not always certain. After the nomination process is completed, contestants and incumbent justices seeking re-elections must actively campaign for their prospective P. O.sitions.

Generally, Supreme Court Justice aspirants must meet the P. O.sition’s eligibility criteria before they may be considered:

  • They must be admitted to practice law in New York for at least ten years
  • They must be greater than 18 years of age
  • They must be citizens of New York State
  • They must be residents of the county from which they beseech P. O.sition

A single tenure of a Supreme Court justice is 14 years. While re-elections are common, a justice may be prompted to leave office on grounds of retirement, illness, or judicial misconduct. Even then, justices may serve until they are 76 years old, provided it is certified that they are mentally and physically capable to discharge the duties of the office. Such certifications are issued every two years until the maximum retirement age is attained (N. Y. Const. Art. VI § 25 (b))..

In practice, some judges of the New York Court of Claims, New York Family Court, New York City Civil Court, and New York City Criminal Court are designated as “Acting Supreme Court Justices” to inhibit the increasing number of pending cases in the supreme court. It is worthy to note that the retirement-certification-retention process is open to only elected Supreme Court Justices and not to acting justices that are primarily elected or apP. O.inted to lower courts.

Pursuant to Section 255 of the New York Judiciary Law, Supreme Court Records are maintained and disseminated by the clerk of court and not the Office of Court Administration (OCA). Requests submitted to the court clerk must be for a specific record, and include relevant details necessary to locate the record. Older records are archived and maintained by the corresP. O.nding County Clerk.

The New York State Unified Court System features a searchable database known as WebCivil Supreme where users can remotely access records of civil cases filed with all supreme courts in the state. Interested parties may launch searches on the database using index number, party name, attorney name, or justice name.

The state’s unified court system also provides an e-Track Database where interested persons can obtain updated information on active Civil Supreme Court cases in all counties in the state.

It is also P. O.ssible to obtain paper copies from the particular Supreme Courthouse where a case was filed. Note that court clerk are allowed to charge a fee for reproducing and certifying court records. Requesters are recommended to contact the court clerk to ascertain copy fees and payment methods, and for additional inquiries. The addresses, and contact details of the Supreme Courts are listed below:
