Q:
Under New York law, how much time do I have to sue the City of New York or some other municipal agency?

A:
Generally speaking, you have 1 year and 90 days to file a lawsuit against the City of New York or some other governmental entity, but before you are even allowed to do that, you must file a Notice of Claim with that agency.
