New York Consolidated Laws, Judiciary Law - JUD § 86. Designation by appellate division of special and trial terms of the supreme court

The justices of the appellate division in each department shall have power to fix the times and places for holding special and trial terms of the supreme court held therein, and to assign the justices in the departments to hold such terms;  or make rules therefor;  and may from time to time make additional appointments and designations, or change or alter those already made.

The justices of the appellate division in the first department shall from time to time as they may deem necessary fix a time and place in the first judicial district for holding special terms for condemnation proceedings affecting property in the city of New York located within the counties of New York and Bronx and assign the justices to hold the same.  The justices of the appellate division in the second department shall from time to time as they may deem necessary fix a time and place in the second judicial district for holding special terms for condemnation proceedings affecting property in the city of New York located within such district;  and in the eleventh judicial district for such proceeding affecting property in such city located within the county of Queens, and assign the justices to hold the same.  The assignment of any justice to hold a special term for condemnation proceedings shall not have the effect of revoking his assignments to other parts or terms of the supreme court and when not actually engaged in holding such special term he shall hold such other parts or terms of the court to which he has been or may be assigned.  Any designation or assignment to service in the said special term for condemnation proceedings may at any time be revoked by the appellate division so designating.
