Election Appeals

This year the New York State legislature has moved the date for state and local primary elections from the second week in September, when such elections have traditionally been held, to June 25, 2019. In response this Court has issued Administrative Order 2019-0206, which sets the schedule by which appeals relating to those elections will be heard. Pursuant to that order, the appeals will be heard on Wednesday, May 22, 2019. Oral argument will commence at 10 AM. All such appeals shall be perfected on or before May 13, 2019, and responding briefs must be served and filed on or before May 16, 2019. All filings must be in compliance with the Appellate Division Rules of Practice, as well as the Second Department’s Rules of Practice. In addition, the parties must e-mail a digital copy of each filing, as well as any relevant transcripts, to each other, and to the Court at aagostin@nycourts.gov .

Please contact the Clerk of the Court at aagostin@nycourts.gov when it appears as though an appeal may be taken, and for further information.
