: 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.
