SECTION 2203
Cases carried over
Uniform City Court Act (UCT) CHAPTER 497, ARTICLE 22
§ 2203. Cases carried over.

All actions and proceedings pending in any court to which this act
applies, at the time this act takes effect, shall remain in the court
and shall be governed by the following subdivisions of this section.

(a) No such action or proceeding, or appeal taken therein, shall abate
by virtue of the application of this act to the court.

(b) For the purpose of the disposition of such pending action or
proceeding only, the jurisdiction of the court shall be deemed expanded
to that of the court under provisions applicable prior to the effective
date of this act whenever necessary to sustain the jurisdiction of the
court over such action or proceeding if the court had jurisdiction of
the same under such provisions.

(c) Except as provided for in the foregoing, practice and procedure in
such actions and proceedings shall be as if the same were instituted
after the effective date of this act. But if the court shall find that a
practice or procedure available prior to the effective date of this act,
but unavailable after such effective date, is necessary to the
disposition of such action or proceeding, the court may permit recourse
to or completion of the same.
