What is a cross-motion?
I want to prepare a cross-motion. How do I do that?
A cross-motion is a motion made against the moving party returnable at the same time and place as the pending motion. Like any motion, a cross-motion is deemed made when the notice of cross-motion is served, not when the original motion is made. § 249. Cross-Motion, Siegel, N.Y. Prac. § 249 (6th ed.)
Civil Practice Law & Rule 2215 Relief demanded by other than moving party governs how to serve a cross-motion.
Sample forms and discussion of CPLR 2215 can be found in materials available in the public access law libraries.
