In Reply to: Eviction: can marshal execute warrant this week before the holiday? posted by Bob on December 20, 1999 at 02:06:55:
: I heard that this week the marshal can't execute warrants of eviction. Is it that the court is not issuing warrants? Do you have any information?
Why should this week be any different? Wasn't Rudy scheduled to move the children of homeless families into foster care this week?
Reality check: the court systems, like many other gov agencies and private businesses, slow to a crawl the last two weeks of the year. I've never heard of a legal prohibition of evictions during this time. And if your landlord's lawyers are among those who bribe court clerks to speed the paperwork through, a warrant can issue in as little as two days: it usually takes an average of two weeks from request to issuance.
Go to the DoI homepage, http://www.ci.nyc.ny.us/html/doi/home.html , the Marshal's Handbook is posted there. Also: they have recently added a FAQ page about evictions... Once you are served, you can call the Marshal to find out what day you are scheduled for eviction. PS: you can also request a delay from the court: read more about it on TenantNet Home.
