DECISIONS



When can I expect a decision on my appeal or proceeding?

Generally, decision-orders are released two weeks after the conclusion of the term and are posted at 3:00 P.M. on the website maintained by the Court (www.nycourts.gov/ad4).



What if my appeal or proceeding is not decided on the decision date that is two weeks after the conclusion of term?

The appeal or proceeding is still pending before the Court. Check subsequent decision-order release dates.



How will I know the release dates for decision-orders?

Release dates are posted on the Court’s website.



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My appeal or proceeding was withdrawn or settled before or after the Court Term; do I have an obligation to inform the Court?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 The rules of the Court require a party to notify the Court when an appeal or proceeding is withdrawn or settled and the failure to do so may subject a party to sanctions (see 22 NYCRR 1000.18 [c]; 1000.19 [b]).
