The Ex-Parte Office reviews ex-parte motions, Orders to Show Cause (OSC) and orders submitted after decisions on motions are made by the Court. We review these as to content, form, and compliance with the relevant statute(s). This office also conducts the unsafe building calendar calls.
The clerks can answer questions that the bar, the general public, and other court personnel may have regarding procedure. If the movant would prefer, a party may be contacted by e-mail when an Order to Show Cause is signed.
2. When will this be signed by the Judge?
The Ex-Parte Office will process your application and send it to the Judge, usually by the next day. Once your papers are reviewed and/or signed by the Judge, they will be sent back to the office. Although a specific time cannot be provided for the return of the papers, most of the time, they are returned within two to three days.
3. How can I obtain a copy of my signed OSC that was submitted to the Ex-Parte's Office?
You may pick up a copy in person at the Ex-Parte's Office or you may download a copy of it online through E-courts.
9. How do I sue someone?
Please click on the left menu tab labeled Departments, then click on the tab labeled Help Center for additional assistance. You can also go to the Kings Supreme Court Help Center located in Room 122C to get more information and/or papers on how to proceed with a lawsuit.
10. Why didn't I get a stay?
If your Order to Show Cause did not include a 'stay' paragraph, you will not get a stay. If your OSC did include a stay paragraph, unless the Judge wrote the reason on the papers, you may want to contact the Judge's chambers for the answer to your question.
