Default Page limit in court submission in NY

Is there any limit on the number of pages I can submit to the court in a NY small claims case?
I don't see any rule about it anywhere?

I wish to inform you that you may have to file form in order to start a civil action in small claims court. Generally form CIV-SC-50 may be filled by you for starting civil action. There may not be any express page limit as filing is made through standard forms.

You can start a case in small claims by filling out a statement of claim by stating the reason through the courts e-filing system.

How many pages of what?

For what?

The complaint itself should be brief and only state your general allegations.

If you are asking about submitting documents and/or evidence at trial, you should try to be brief there, too, as judges usually pencil in time limits for each case and won't appreciate you presenting the Encyclopedia Britannica for them to read.

The OP did not say New York City. That form is for NYC only.

The county courts that handle small claims cases usually have an office dedicated to small claims and helping claimants get their cases filed. I know Queens does. Make use of this resource if it exists in your borough - it can save you a lot of time and trouble.

The judge is not going to read 500 pages in a small claims court case.
So whatever you attach needs to be VERY reasonable.

None that I am aware of and I filed 1100 pages in my case.

You can be almost sure the small claims court judge did not read 1100 pages.
They just don't have the time for that at that level. That's why you need a clear and concise version as well usually.
