The chapter discusses the requirement that a defendant must move to dismiss an action if service is not made within the 120-day period. It also explains that the plaintiff has a right to move ex parte for an extension of time to serve; and, if the defendant does move to dismiss after expiration of the 120-day period, the plaintiff has the right to cross-move for an extension based on "good cause shown" or "in the interests of justice." Finally the chapter compares New York's provision with the analogous Federal Rule of Civil Procedure, Fed. R. Civ. P. 4, pointing out the general conformity of the New York provision with the federal rule.
The chapter includes a historical appendix discussing the amendments and legislative and judicial reports relating to CPLR R306-b, references to related New York State and federal rules, and law reviews discussing CPLR R306-b.
New York Civil Practice: CPLR (more commonly known as Weinstein, Korn & Miller) is the leading treatise on New York civil procedure and litigation, and is cited frequently by New York State and Federal courts as the authority on civil practice issues. It provides in-depth analysis and interpretation of New York's Civil Practice Law and Rules (CPLR), along with expert guidance and information on common and complex procedural issues facing New York civil law practitioners.
