The Powers of New York Court of Appeals
provides detailed analysis by a veteran appellate lawyer of practice before the New York Court of Appeals. It covers the Court of Appeals' jurisdiction, scope, and development; the finality requirement; appeals as of right; appeals on constitutional grounds; review of nonfinal orders; appeals by permission; limitations on appealability; time limitations; procedural aspects of questions of law; review of appeal; and disposition after the decision. Recent developments covered in this edition include:
• An Appellate Division reversal of a Supreme Court order granting a motion to amend a prior final judgment does not finally determine the action within the meaning of the Constitution
• Complete revision of scrutiny of jurisdiction by the Court of Appeals
• Complete revision of appeals selected by the Court of Appeals for review by alternate procedure
In addition, the book discusses every applicable local court rule for appeals to the Court of Appeals and each of the four departments of the appellate division, as well as the statutory requirements for the appeals to the county court from city courts and town and village district courts.
