Justice Court is the first level trial court of New York State's Unified Court System. Many New Yorkers will have their first and only court experience in a town or village court. The justices respond to calls from law enforcement officers on a twenty four hour, seven day a week schedule.
March 24, 2020: The New York State Office of Court Administration has instructed all town and village justice courts to not answer phones or perform any court related work during the Coronavirus Pandemic. Supervisor Meyers thinks these instructions are absolutely wrong and absurd. For anyone with justice court matters in New Windsor, please contact the New Windsor Supervisor's office at (845) 563-4610 and they will provide any assistance they can. Tickets can be paid on our website at https://newwindsor-ny.gov/Officials-Departments/Justice-Court.
Justice Court has preliminary jurisdiction over felony cases and exclusive jurisdiction over misdemeanor cases, pending divesture to the County Court. Small claims and civil cases up to $3,000.00 are also handled in Justice Court.
The New Windsor Justice Court is open to the public and the public is welcome to attend court sessions.
