The Clerks' Offices of the Court of Appeals and the Appellate Division Departments release the following joint scheduling announcement:

The Departments have scheduled and reserved only the following dates to consider appeals related to the September 13, 2018 primary elections:

  • First Department: Tuesday, August 21, 2018 (Wednesday, August 22, if necessary)
  • Second Department: Tuesday, August 21, 2018
  • Third Department: Thursday, August 23, 2018
  • Fourth Department: Wednesday, August 22, 2018

The Court of Appeals has scheduled Wednesday, August 29, 2018 and, if necessary, Thursday, August 30, 2018 to consider appeals and motions for leave to appeal related to primary election matters.

Because there is limited time available between the primary election sessions of the Appellate Divisions and the Court of Appeals, parties who seek to have matters placed upon the Court of Appeals motions or appeals calendars must contact the Court of Appeals Clerk's Office for filing instructions promptly (usually at the time the decision of the Appellate Division is made known).

All parties, election boards and affected courts are expected to proceed expeditiously with all phases of election matters so that the requirements of these special sessions can be met. Details concerning adherence to and compliance with the schedule may be sought by communication with the respective clerks' offices, as the need arises.
