Section 101-A Pending actions and proceedings

New York City Criminal Court (CRC)

No action or other proceeding, relating to any complaint alleging a misdemeanor under the multiple dwelling law which shall be pending before any three judge panel of the criminal court on the effective date of this act, which provides for trial solely before a single judge of the criminal court shall abate or be otherwise affected by the passage of this act and all such actions and proceedings so pending shall thereafter be continued before any three judge panel of the criminal court. Any three judge panel of the criminal court shall have the power to adjourn any action or proceeding pending at or before the time this act takes effect to some day thereafter when the same shall be continued before such panel of the criminal court to which it was adjourned. In no event, however, may such an action or proceeding be transferred from a single judge of the criminal court to a three judge panel thereof after the effective date of this act.
