5520 - Omissions; Appeal by Improper Method.

Universal Citation: NY CPLR § 5520 (2019)
§  5520.  Omissions;  appeal by improper method. (a) Omissions.  If an
appellant either serves or files a timely notice of appeal or notice  of
motion  for  permission  to  appeal,  but  neglects  through  mistake or
excusable neglect to do another required act within  the  time  limited,
the  court from or to which the appeal is taken or the court of original
instance may grant an extension of time for curing the omission.

(b) Appeal by permission instead of as of right. An appeal taken by permission shall not be dismissed upon the ground that the appeal would lie as of right and was not taken within the time limited for an appeal as of right, provided the motion for permission was made within the time limited for taking the appeal.

(c) Defects in form. Where a notice of appeal is premature or contains an inaccurate description of the judgment or order appealed from, the appellate court, in its discretion, when the interests of justice so demand, may treat such a notice as valid.
