The Town Court plays a vital role in the New York State Unified Court System. These courts have broad jurisdiction and they hear both civil and criminal matters.
On the civil side, the Town and Village Courts hear actions seeking monetary awards up to $3,000 and small claims proceedings for awards up to $3,000. These courts also handle landlord/tenant matters that may result in an eviction as well as a money judgment for back rent that is due.
On the criminal side, the court is authorized to handle matters involving the prosecution of misdemeanors and violations that are committed within the town’s geographic boundaries.
The Town Court also conducts arraignments and preliminary hearings in felony matters. In addition, this court hears Vehicle and Traffic Law misdemeanors and traffic infractions.
