Trees on my property in NYC: what is the law if it hangs over to my neighbors property, can he come after me or my insurance? Or since (I believe) legally he can cut anything thatís over his property itís his problem to trim etc to avoid damages?

I dont know if the New York City code has any specific law which shifts responsibility, but in NY in general you can't force your neighbor to trim the tree over your property or even to do anything on his side. If the neighbor's tree falls and does damage on your property I believe that the neighbor and/or his insurance wont be liable unless you can prove that the tree was already in bad shape (rot, dying, prior damage) which was known to him and which he did not remedy before it caused damage to your property.

It depends if the tree is rotten or otherwise defective.  If its rotten and you knew that it was rotten, you could be on the hook if the tree falls and causes damage to your neighbor's property.  If the tree is in good condition, you are probably in the clear. 

Your neighbor is allowed to cut the overhanging branches down if they are bothering him but he cannot touch the main body of the tree (courts refer to this as "self help").  You definitely cannot force your neighbor to cut the tree himself.

Question regarding pending injunction relief.

 Agudah vs Jackson township. Has requested an injunction on all ordinances targeting ERUV and other based on religion bias. The judge will rule on 10/7.

 I have received a violation for one of the ordinances thatís part of the injunction request. My court date is 9/25.
 
Is there an official or non official way to request  that I given till 10/7 to remove my ďviolationĒ.
If I need to remove it it will cost me $500-700.
Thanks

Not a lawyer.
Always praying for delayed baggage.

Since Iím in violation I have 15 days to remove it. By pushing off the court date that may Result in a fine  for the days I have it on my property

Dont know much about the Agudah lawsuit vs Jackson Township but why not call the lawyers who are representing the Agudah and ask them. They may have information about challenges to the statute. They may also know whether the 10/7 date is a real date as often these dates are for conferences and/or hearings and the Judge issues his decision weeks or months later.

I was in New York and have MO plates on my car. I received tickets for expired registration and inspection. Is this legal?
