There are only two counties in the Appellate Division, First Department (New York and Bronx) while the Appellate Division, Second Department has 10 counties (Dutchess, Orange, Richmond, Westchester, Kings, Putnam, Rockland, Nassau, Queens and Suffolk). Due to the large amount of appeals filed at the Second Department, it can take much longer to get an appeal on the Second Department’s oral argument calendar.
