Awhile back someone (JJ?) asked about how their landlord's attorney got a warrant one day after requesting it: my research led to one answer: money was paid to speed the process, it has happened before. Otherwise, normally, it takes from a couple of weeks to over a month.
This is an excerpt from New York Law Journal: different court, same thing:
A COURT CLERK and two lawyers have been
arrested on bribery charges relating to speeding the
processing of uncontested divorces in State Supreme
Court in Manhattan, the New York County District
Attorney's Office disclosed yesterday.
Steven Singer, 50, the supervising clerk for
matrimonial cases in Manhattan, was arrested at his home
Wednesday on charges of accepting bribes in 13 cases
that were part of a sting operation by the Manhattan
District Attorney's Office. Mr. Singer was released without
bail after his arraignment yesterday.
