Terms Used In New York Laws > General City > Article 4 - Plumbing and Drainage

  • Allegation: something that someone says happened.
  • Answer: The formal written statement by a defendant responding to a civil complaint and setting forth the grounds for defense.
  • Chairman: means the chairman of the dormitory authority. See N.Y. Public Authorities Law 1695
  • Complaint: A written statement by the plaintiff stating the wrongs allegedly committed by the defendant.

  • Equitable: Pertaining to civil suits in "equity" rather than in "law." In English legal history, the courts of "law" could order the payment of damages and could afford no other remedy. See damages. A separate court of "equity" could order someone to do something or to cease to do something. See, e.g., injunction. In American jurisprudence, the federal courts have both legal and equitable power, but the distinction is still an important one. For example, a trial by jury is normally available in "law" cases but not in "equity" cases. Source: U.S. Courts
  • Fiscal year: The fiscal year is the accounting period for the government. For the federal government, this begins on October 1 and ends on September 30.

  • Venue: The geographical location in which a case is tried.
