Civil Cases

The Justice Court has jurisdiction over actions and proceedings for the recovery of money or chattels. The following requirements must be met:

  • The plaintiff lives or works in North Castle and the defendant lives or works in Westchester County, or
  • The defendant lives or works in North Castle, regardless of plaintiff's residence, and
  • The amount sought to be recovered or the value of the property does not exceed $3,000, with the exception of landlord/tenant matters (an action may be brought to remove a resident residing in property within the town and to recover back rent).
