N.Y. Judiciary Law Section 190-C
Terms of county court


The county judge must, from time to time, appoint the times and places for holding terms of his court.


At least two terms, for the trial of issues of law or of fact, must be appointed to be held in each year.


Each term may continue as long as the county judge deems necessary.


The county judge may, by a new appointment, change the day appointed for holding a term, or appoint one or more additional terms, or dispense with the holding of a term, without affecting any other term or terms theretofore appointed to be held.


The county court is always open for the transaction of any business for which notice is not required to be given to an adverse party, except where it is specially prescribed by law that the business must be done at a stated term.


A statute or rule conferring power upon or authorizing a proceeding to be taken at a specified term of court, if the provision is applicable to a county court, is to be construed as applying to any term of the county court held pursuant to an appointment made as prescribed by law.
