Part 9

Part 9 is technically a District Court part but is located in Mineola, in the West Wing Courthouse.

Part 9

Part 9, although technically a District Court part, serves as a felony screening part and consists of cases on which felony complaints have been filed. Two 18B “Attorneys of the Day” (one County Court Panelist and one Major Felony Panelist) are assigned to Part 9 on a daily basis. One serves as the primary attorney and the other as backup attorney. The primary attorney should introduce him/herself to the clerk upon arrival and remain in the Part until the calendar is concluded. This attorney will be assigned all cases on which the Legal Aid Society has a conflict, or where a split fee agreement exists.

The backup attorney should also introduce him/herself to the clerk and remain in Part 9 to assist the primary attorney (by taking some of the assignments if there are a large number) but the backup attorney is also required to go to individual County Court Parts when a Legal Aid conflict develops and an 18B attorney’s presence is required.

Applicants who in the opinion of the Administrator do not have sufficient experience in the daily operation of Part 9 in Nassau County are required to spend time in Part 9, trailing an experienced 18B Panelist. This is a training period for the applicant and is not reimbursable. No applicant will be given any Part 9 assignments unless he/she has first completed this requirement.


Everyday we have 2 18B attorneys assigned to Part 9: a County Court Panelist and a Major Felony Panelist.

Primary attorney

The Primary attorney of the day remains in Part 9, to be assigned any conflict cases that arise there.

Backup attorney

The Backup attorney of the day remains in Part 9 unless and until needed in other parts of the County Court.
