Glossary of Common Abbreviations

The following is a list of some of the more commonly encountered abbreviations found in eCourts. Please bear in mind when viewing the Comments fields that these are primarily used by the court staff to make notations for their own use. The same abbreviation may mean different things in different courts (you will note that many of the entries in this glossary show multiple translations) and different courts may use different abbreviations to mean the same thing. Frequently (primarily for downstate Civil Supreme courts) you will find the appearance time (e.g. 11:30). You should view the comments in the context of the case, for example you may often find the Justice's initials included as part of the comments.

If you are unable to locate an abbreviation here you should contact the court for clarification.

Just click on the first letter of the abbreviation to navigate to that section of the glossary.
