18 Feb Appellate Division, 2nd Department Expands E-filing
[1 minute to read] Mandatory e-filing will be expanded beginning on April 1, 2020, at which time appeals in all matters originating and filed electronically in Supreme and Surrogate’s Courts in Nassau and Richmond Counties must be e-filed.
Mandatory e-filing will be effective as follows:
- Where the notice of appeal is dated on or after April 1, 2020
- Where the notice of appeal is dated prior to April 1, 2020 and the appeal is perfected on or after May 15, 2020, in which case compliance with the time limitation in 22 NYCRR 1245.3(a) is measured from April 1, 2020
In matters originating and electronically filed in Supreme and Surrogate’s Courts in Nassau County that are perfected prior to April 1, 2020, e-filing is neither mandated nor permitted.
As of April 1, 2020, e-filing will be mandatory in all matters originating and electronically filed in the Supreme and Surrogate’s Courts in the following counties:
Dutchess, Nassau, Orange, Putnam, Queens, Richmond, Rockland, Suffolk and Westchester
Presently, e-filing is not permitted in any matters originating in Kings County, but it is the hope of the court that mandatory e-filing will be expanded this summer to include Kings County.
