Town Hall, 1830 Danby Road, Ithaca, NY 14850
The Court Clerk is available Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 8:00am until 11:00am.
The Town of Danby Court serves the community by adjudicating a wide variety of cases. Most of the cases are Vehicle and Traffic Law infractions, but the Court also handles DWI/DUI violations, DEC violations, as well as criminal or and civil matters.
A monthly audit of reported cases is sent to the New York State Office of Court Administration. Bail money received by the Court is retained in a non-interest bearing account until a case is disposed of or released by the judge.
The Town of Danby sits on the traditional & ancestral land of the Gayogoho:no’ (Cayuga Nation), one of the five nations to first form the Haudenosaunee. Indigenous peoples were largely forced out of Upstate New York by the Sullivan-Clinton Expedition in 1779. The land that would become the Town of Danby was a part of the Watkins and Flint Purchase, a 336,380 acre patent granted by New York State to numerous eastern investors in 1794.
