When a Notice of Appeal is filed in New York County the additional copy provided to the County Clerk is sent to the Appellate Division First Department. The Appellate Division signs a receipt for that copy, which is then filed with the County Clerks office. The entry of the receipt produces CourtAlert 51.
Approximately eight months after receiving CourtAlert 51 the user will then receive CourtAlert 88, which will advise you that the deadline to perfect the appeal is approaching. CourtAlert 88 provides the exact wording of the applicable rule.
Similarly, for electronically filed New York County cases CourtAlert 58 produces a similar alert.
In light of clients' requests, we have adjusted the schedule a little. These alerts will now be produced two weeks earlier.
We would like to thank our clients for their feedback and suggestions.
We are Committed to Remain the
