Subject: New Alerts for
NYS Supreme Cases
Office of Court Administration has implemented an
addition of data elements to the Post-RJI state wide computer
system which started yesterday. CourtAlert would like to announce a change of
its display and the addition of three new alerts to utilize the new
CourtAlert 77 – Electronic Filing status changed.
The status of electronically
filed cases can be granted and revoked from a case at certain stages
of a case. One prior method of indicating that a case was
an electronic filing case was the second digit in the index number being
a “5” (in NY County) which proved unreliable. The court has now designated a
data element to mark a case as electronically filed, or changing the status to non-electronic filing case. CourtAlert 77 will report of such
changes when a regular case is classified as an electronic filing case and
when an electronic filing case is reclassified to a regular status.
In New York County
once a case is classified as an Electronic Filing case, the county
clerk system is no longer being updated by the court for new minutes
and therefore CourtAlert 50 and CourtAlert 51 will no longer be
applicable for such case.
CourtAlert 71 – Foreclosure Settlement Conference Scheduled
CourtAlert 72 – Foreclosure Settlement Conference Held
These alerts refer to the
recent requirement that the court mandate a Foreclosure Settlement
Conference for certain “sub prime” cases. The change in regulations is
described in CourtAlert’s tip of the week on November
court is to schedule the Foreclosure
Settlement Conference within 60 days of the date of good service (the
date the proof of service was filed). If that date is not recorded on the
Post-RJI computer system (which is quit likely) the RJI Date will be utilized.
would like to thank the following court personal for spending time with our office to assist us with this changes:
