Since October 2001, attorneys entering any of the several facilities of the court have been required to pass through metal detectors. Secure Pass IDs are available to all New York attorneys. The pass allows the holder to enter any of our facilities or other New York State courthouses without having to pass through magnetometers. The passes, which are valid for five years, can be renewed online.
Application & Renewal Procedures
Please note that applications for Secure Passes are not processed at any of the facilities of the Supreme Court, Civil Branch, New York County. Applications are, however, accepted at the New York City Civil Court, 111 Centre Street (White Street Entrance), as well as at other trial-level courthouses in New York City.
