Did you get a Summons/Notice of Hearing (also called a violation)?
The Office of Administrative Trials and Hearings (OATH) hears DCA cases. You can find more information about OATH, including its procedural rules, at nyc.gov/oath
. Note: If you do not agree with OATH’s Recommended Decision, you may submit a written argument form
(in PDF) to DCA within 30 days of OATH’s recommendation.
Would you like to submit a Discovery Request?
At least five business days before your hearing date, you can submit a discovery request to DCA, and we will respond before the hearing date. Submit your request to firstname.lastname@example.org
. Please include your Summons/Notice number.
