If I have questions regarding the decision of the Court, may I call the Clerk’s Office for clarification?

No. The Court staff is not permitted to interpret or attempt to clarify a decision or order of the Court. Your remedy is to file a motion for reargument or clarification.

My appeal or proceeding was withdrawn or settled before or after the Court Term; do I have an obligation to inform the Court?

Yes. The rules of the Court require a party to notify the Court when an appeal or proceeding is withdrawn or settled and the failure to do so may subject a party to sanctions (see 22 NYCRR 1000.18 [c]; 1000.19 [b]).
