Literally, how long does it take in NY? 10-12 days? Can it be also delayed? If it gets delayed can I dismiss it right away?
Dear Brooklyn Litigant:
If your question relates to an Order to Show Cause in an NYC Housing Court matter, any HCJ may direct a hearing on as little as one day to usually not more than five to seven days. If you are the opponent of the court direction to show cause a reason the movant should not have the requested relief, unless you oppose the request with a written affidavit, the HCJ may not factor in your reasoning for granting or denying the relief requested. See: https://www.nycourts.gov/courts/nyc/housing/osc.shtml#opposition
If your question does not involve a Housing Court Order to Show Cause, post a new question.
