New Filing Fees in New York City Civil Court Will Not Be Implemented
NEW YORK - New York State Chief Administrative Judge Jonathan Lippman issued the following statement today regarding legislation to implement new filing fees in New York City Civil Court:

"I have received concrete representations from the respective chairs of the Judiciary Committees of the Assembly and the Senate that legislation providing for filing fees for motions and stipulations of settlement was not intended to apply to the New York City Civil Court. These representations are further supported by both the Assembly and the Senate, each having passed a corrective bill that expressly states that these filing fees do not apply in the Civil Court, although these bills could not become law because they were not the same in other respects. Based upon these representations, and after consultation with State Comptroller Alan Hevesi, I have directed that the New York City Civil Court not collect the filing fees for motions and stipulations of settlement until October 1, 2003, which will give the Legislature time to address this matter."
