- Article 78 proceedings are deemed special proceedings in the civil procedure law for New York State.
- They’re typically employed in a civil context because you have to go to the local Supreme Court in the county that you’re bringing the application.
- An Article 78 is a request for a municipality, government entity, or government agency to either do something or not do something.
- The municipal and governmental entity is put on notice when the application is brought and a Supreme Court judge will hear the case right from the outset.
