  New York Supreme Court - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Smaller civil cases and less serious criminal cases are handled in other courts: the Civil and Criminal Courts in New York City; County and District Courts in Nassau and Suffolk Counties on Long Island; and County, City, Town and Village Courts in the rest of the state.
Although the New York Supreme Court in theory has unlimited general original jurisdiction over civil litigation, in practice it does not normally hear cases with lower monetary claims that are within the powers of a New York state trial court of limited jurisdiction such as County Court or N.Y.C. Civil Court.
New York's highest appellate court is the Court of Appeals; appeals are taken from the four departments to the Court of Appeals; decisions from the Court of Appeals are binding throughout the state.

 New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-04)
The Appellate Division of the New York Supreme Court is the intermediate appellate court in the U.S. state of New York.
The Appellate Division hears appeals from the New York Supreme Court, which is the state's general trial court; decisions by the Appellate Division are in turn appealed to the state's highest court, the New York Court of Appeals.
New York's rules of civil procedure allow for interlocutory appeals, meaning that most trial court decisions may be appealed to the appropriate appellate department while the case is still pending in the trial court.

 New York v. Ferber (1982)
The court reasoned that in light of the explicit inclusion of an obscenity standard in a companion statute banning the knowing dissemination of similarly defined material, the statute in question could not be construed to include an obscenity standard, and therefore would prohibit the promotion of materials traditionally entitled to protection under the First Amendment.
It remains to address the claim that the New York statute is unconstitutionally overbroad because it would forbid the distribution of material with serious literary, scientific, or educational value or material which does not threaten the harms sought to be combated by the State.
The Court's holding that this respondent may not challenge New York's statute as overbroad follows its discussion of the contours of the category of nonobscene child pornography that New York may legitimately prohibit.

 Same-Sex Marriage In NY - CBS News
And even New York Supreme Court Judge Doris Ling-Cohen knew that her decision would be appealed, which it will be by order of Mayor Michael Bloomberg, and that it may not withstand the rigors of appellate review.
Based upon those facts, and citing the Supreme Court's rulings a generation ago that struck down laws prohibiting interracial marriage, the judge declared that any individual has the constitutional right to marry the person or his or her choice, whether or not society as a whole approves of that choice.
From a 1965 Supreme Court Court ruling that struck down a Connecticut law that banned the sale of contraceptives, she culled the following language: "Marriage is a coming together for better or for worse, hopefully enduring, and intimate to a degree of being sacred.

New York lodged a detainer against respondent, an Ohio prisoner, under the Interstate Agreement on Detainers (IAD).
After respondent was convicted of both charges, the New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division, affirmed the trial court’s refusal to dismiss for lack of a timely trial.
The State Court of Appeals, however, reversed and ordered that the indictment be dismissed; counsel’s agreement to a later trial date, it held, did not waive respondent’s IAD speedy trial rights.

Hardy, 169 U.S. The conditions existing in the State of New York, which may be considered as the occasion for the enactment of the statute under consideration, show that it was a proper exercise of the police power of the State.
In the Supreme Court two of the five judges composing the Appellate Division dissented from the judgment affirming the validity of the act.
The judgment of the Court of Appeals of New York as well as that of the Supreme Court and of the County Court of Oneida County must be reversed and the case remanded to the County Court for further proceedings not inconsistent with this opinion.

NEW YORK -- The Supreme Court Term that ended today will long be remembered for its emphatic repudiation of the Bush administration's claim that it can conduct the war on terrorism as it sees fit with virtually no opportunity for meaningful judicial review, the American Civil Liberties Union said today.
Before the Supreme Court, however, the administration contended that Guantánamo is still part of Cuba and thus the detainees being held there have no right to challenge the legality of their detention in federal court.
The Court ultimately stopped short of deciding whether Vice President Cheney could be compelled to disclose the identity of private advisors to the government energy task force he chaired.

 New World Man - almost free: Fish in a barrel, New York Times Supreme Court endorsement division   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-04)
Reading the New York Times' endorsement of the confirmation of Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg on July 25, 1993 (go buy it from their paid archives if you want; I did), you would think that a nominee who is obviously smarter than his Senate interrogators would be a blue chip choice for the Court.
When the Court laid down its one-man, one-vote rule for state legislatures in 1964 he dissented, because he believed the vitality of the American political system was weakened by reliance on the judiciary for political reform; "the Constitution," he said, "is not a panacea for every blot upon the public welfare."
As the 1993 editorial board of the New York Times described then-Supreme Court nominee Ruth Bader Ginsburg, she would serve a capital doppelgänger to Judge John Roberts today.

On June 30, 2005, New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer, who is defending the state in the federal court action, intervened in the state court action, asking the Appellate Division to "revise[ ] and correct[ ]" its erroneous decision to order the Temple to create members and then hold referee-run elections.

Since his retirement, Marks has devoted considerable effort to undoing some of the worst excesses of New York's draconian Rockefeller drug laws, including undertaking successful clemency petitions for a handful of people languishing in prison for years for minor roles in drug crimes.
There was some concern, but there is not much the judges can do, except in the appellate courts, and the Court of Appeals found the law to be constitutional in 1975.
There is public support -- a New York Times poll last year saw 80% in favor of reforming the Rockefeller laws -- but the problem is, it's just not a priority.
