Comments
A busy court suffering from an overdose of drug cases and recovering from police corruption that is hopefully now in the past. Judge Versaci used to take a very tough line on prostitution cases, but he moved up to Surrogate.
Civil Part is at 105 Jay Street, along with traffic.
About the area
The City of Schenectady was the home of General Electric. Like many upstate cities, industrial decline and suburban flight have left the city in a difficult position. Recent economic development efforts create some hope. The Union College area is doing well.
Hours of Operation This is a full-time court. M-F 9-5.
Judges
Hon. Guido Loyola (is he still there?), Hon. Matt Sypniewski, and Hon. Mark Blanchfield - all good people.
Prosecutors
Schenectady DA's office handles most cases in the City Court. We've heard that traffic cases cannot be resolved by mail, unlike the rest of the county. Hopefully that will change. Always makes you comfortable to have court in the police station.
Type Of Cases A substantial amount of urban crime, much of it the result of drug prohibition.

Sep 29 2009 07:53:17: I have been handling traffic matters in Sch'dy via mail with no problem other than the number of months it takes and the fact that they do not issue you a control date.
Jan 05 2007 05:53:51: Court does not sign off on licence suspensions unless a disposition is closed although suspension papers state a disposition is not required.
