About the Justice Court:

Justice Court has preliminary jurisdiction over felony cases and exclusive jurisdiction over misdemeanor cases, pending divestiture to the County Court. Small claims and civil cases up to $3,000.00 are also handled in Justice Court.

Court Staff are happy to help and can answer questions concerning the Court’s procedures, but who are not permitted to give legal advice.

Vehicle and Traffic:
Cases charging the commission of a traffic infraction are filed in the Montgomery Justice Court if the alleged offense took place in our Town.  Information regarding how to proceed with a traffic ticket may be found on the ticket issued to the motorist.  It is the obligation of the motorist to respond to the ticket.  After the court receives notification that a defendant is pleading not guilty, the office of the Court Clerk will schedule a court date.   A plea of guilty will result in a fine letter, which will instruct the defendant on procedure and amount of payment.

Regular Court sessions take place in the evenings each month as needed for traffic trials or other Court proceedings at the Judge’s discretion.

All Courtroom proceedings are recorded.  No Weapons. Respectful proper attire is required business casual is acceptable.  No Cell phones and Electronic devices.  Please leave them at home or in your vehicle.  No Photography or Recording Allowed. Photography and/or recording of proceedings are allowed upon written prior approval from the Justice Court Judge.

Small Claims:
The Court also hears small claims cases when the Defendant resides in, is employed in, or has a place of business within the Town for money damages only, not the return of personal property.  The civil jurisdiction of the Court is limited to claims up to the sum of $3,000.00.

Generally, corporations, partnerships, associations or assignees cannot sue in Small Claims Court.  These claims must be filed in a Commercial Claims Court.  (City Courts:  i.e.: Middletown, Newburgh or Port Jervis).

In a Town or Village Court, if your claim is $1,000 or less, you will be required to pay a $10 filing fee.  If your claim is for more than $1,000, you will be required to pay a $15 filing fee. 

To obtain an application, please visit or contact the Court.

While you do not need a lawyer in small claims cases, in the Town of Montgomery Justice Court, you may retain an attorney if you so desire.

For Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's) please visit NYS Unified Court System website.

 

Jury Duty

Jury trials are scheduled about once a month.  Jurors are selected from a pool of citizens throughout Orange County.

Notification and Appearance

When a jury is required, the court will send out a jury notification summons to those that have been selected about two weeks before the hearing.  Those selected are instructed to call the court the day before the jury trial to listen to a recording to see if they still need to appear. The number to call is 457-4277.

To be excused

If you need to be excused from jury duty, only the Judge can excuse you.  To request to be excused, send a letter to the court along with proof of why you cannot atttend (e.g. doctor appointment, flight itinerary, etc) so the Judge can review it.
