You Have a Cause of Action … Now What?

So you have a case to file but the question is, where and in what court do I file? In New York State, there is a Supreme Court in each of the counties. Each one is a court of general jurisdiction. 

In Thrasher v. United States Liability Ins. Co., 19 N.Y.2d 159, 166 (1967), the Court of Appeals, citing the State Constitution, Article VI, said “[t]he Supreme Court is a court of general jurisdiction and it is competent to entertain all causes of action unless its jurisdiction has been specifically proscribed . . . .”


If you have any legal questions or need help with a case, please contact Attorney Scott Lanin at (212) 764-7250 x 201 or use the contact form in the right sidebar.
