Defendant Requests More Time for Appeal


This case involved Plaro Estates, Inc. as the appellant. The Assessor, et al. and the Town of Clarkstown were respondents, while the Clarkstown Central School District #1 was the nonparty-respondent.


Under the terms of 22 NYCRR 670.8(d)(2), the appellant made a request to gain more time for an appeal. A New York Probate Lawyer said the request was in regards to an order from the Supreme Court in Rockland County. The original order was issued on April 15th of 2011, and the appellant requested more time to perfect their appeal.

Papers were filed to support this application by the counsel for the appellant. The counsel for the respondent made no such filing in opposition to the movement to extend the time needed to perfect the original appeal.


The court ruled that more time could be allowed to perfect the appeal. The original deadline was moved up to February 23rd, 2012. It was ruled that the brief for the appellant, along with the appendix for the original appeal, must be filed with the court and served anytime before, but no later than February 23rd, 2012.
