The New York Court of Appeals has overruled the New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division, which held that the Sixth and Fourteenth Amendments require a jury trial in a Family Court Proceeding charging one with being a juvenile delinquent based on an act which if committed by an adult would constitute a felony and thus entitle him to a jury trial.
In Re D., 313 N.Y.S.2d 704, 27 N.Y.2d 90 (1970).
