Elliott Scheinberg, Esq.
Hailed as an "extraordinary work" by highly recognized (retired) appellate judges, this "unparalleled," extensive compendium is a finessed compilation of appellate authority, foundational and uniquely esoteric, on all aspects related to civil appeals to the Appellate Division. Many of the intricate and complex topics covered have received either general, minimal or no analysis elsewhere.
Using the detailed table of contents and index, the researcher can quickly locate key precedential language for use as authority in briefs and arguments. The compendium offers an in-depth examination of topics such as:
A broad section on issue preservation
An extensive section regarding issues raised for the first time on appeal, when the same issue has been considered and precluded
The fugitive disentitlement doctrine
General and specific trial objections on appeal
The intersection between CPLR 5701(a)(2) and CPLR 2215(a)
The treatment of standing and subject matter jurisdiction
Significant treatment is also devoted to the pitfalls of appellate practice under the Family Court Act. This two-volume work is certain to become a standard resource for both bench and bar.
"This extraordinary work is worth its weight for the table of contents alone. It provides a clear roadmap to a successful appellate submission. The depth of analysis that follows and ease of use make it solid gold for appellate practitioners, bench and bar alike... It's truly a remarkable work."
Hon. Eugene F. Pigott, Jr.
Ret. Senior Associate Judge, New York State Court of Appeals
"Elliott Scheinberg has done it again! His new compendium, 'New York Civil Appellate Citator' will be the 'go to' source for Appellate Judges and practitioners looking for guidance and easy reference on topics ranging from the basics to the complex! [It] allows quick access to the concepts at issue and provides a concise, yet in-depth discussion, with ample authority to support the proposition at hand."
