The judge set a schedule for me to file a motion to amend the late notion of claim, with me filing the motion in December and the defendant filing the opposition to my motion in January. May I take the liberty to file a short reply brief?
Reposted to Litigation. If the briefing schedule did not explicitly include a reply, you had best check with chambers before you serve and file one.
I am not your attorney and any posts/messages or responses to posts/messages can not and do not establish an attorney-client relationship. You should not rely upon free legal advice, and I disclaim any liability for the outcome if you do. Any opinions offered on matters outside New York State are for general informational purposes only.
The CPLR states you are permitted to file a reply. In any event, a judges briefing schedule overrides the CPLR. I agree with my colleague Mr. Horner. Read the judges individual part rules, then contact the correct person for clarification.

I do not have my local rules handy.
You need to refer to the local rules of the district court you are in; and the practice rules of your judge.
They are available on the internet. You can do your own easy research.
