Hi! had a trial in Manhattan Housing Court: lost, mostly. The warrant was issued TWO DAYS after the Marshall's requisition was received and time-stamped by the clerk. A well-respected tenant attorney of many years experience said this was 'almost unheard of', that landlords complain daily that it takes two to six weeks from receipt to issuance. He suggested that I ask you: tenants, advocates, and/or lawyers what your experience is, in preparation for filing a request for investigation.

So: what is normal, typical for Manhattan: two days? two weeks? six weeks?


So: did you ever do anything about this?

Here's the latest news from NYLJ: same problem, different court:

In return for the bribes, which prosecutors said ranged from $10 to $230
per case, Mr. Singer sped the processing of uncontested divorces,
which normally take two to six weeks, to just one or two days.

Mr. Morgenthau said yesterday that the plea agreement covers only Mr.
Singer's actions with respect to matrimonial matters, and that
investigators remain free to probe any wrongdoing in other areas under
his supervision.

And here is the NYTimes report, also today:
