The Supreme Court’s Appellate Division has affirmed an order issued by Nassau County Surrogate Edward McCarty in the Matter of Palma A. Pascale 102 AD 3rd 796 which granted objectant’s motion to compel production of certain documents prior to the completion of SCPA 1404 examinations. SCPA 1404 provides that objections must be filed within ten days of the completion of examinations. Here, however, objectant sought to leave the examinations open and incomplete subject to the production of the demanded documents. The appellate court ruled that the Surrogate providently exercised his discretion in directing the production of the material and providing that the objections would not have to be filed until materials were produced and the examinations completed.
