Lowest court in NY?!
This is the State Supreme Court.
Supreme Court is the lowest court in New York. Its a holdover from colonial days where it was the Supreme Court for the County.
There are 62 counties in NY, meaning there are 62 Supreme Courts.
Efforts to change this are often opposed by the trial judges, who like being called Supreme Court Justices of New York. They get more cookies when they attend out of state judge conventions.
