The NY State Supreme Court is not that state’s highest court, nor is it even an appellate court at all.
Trial court rulings do not establish precedents and are NOT binding on other courts whatsoever, certainly not on the NY State Court of Appeals, which is actually that state’s highest court, equivalent to the California Supreme Court.
Supreme Court Ruling, dated August 22, 2008 in the Satmar Case, virtually assures that the Gaboim, "Congregation Lubavitch", will win in the current pending, Court of Appeals case , against Krisnky’s attempt to Evict the Rebbe’s Chassidim from the Rebbe’s Shull, in 770.

Brooklyn, NY – NY SUPREME COURT Judge:
"Court Cannot Get Involved In Any Religious Ideological Dispute in Satmar, even when it involves Real Estate and other monetary issues."
In The Supreme Court decision, this week, Judge Ambrosio points out that the court cannot get involved in the Satmar Leadership and religious ideological disputes.
It is expected that the judge will rule similarly regarding the courts inability to get involved in deciding, any issues regarding the current Lubavitch Leadership, where Krinsky is attempting to claim that Krinsky, (and Not the Rebbe) is now in control, of all of Lubavitch, which is apposed by the Gaboim, and is apposed by 99.99% of all Lubavitcher Chassidim.
Excerpt form the decision:
"Most importantly, the Court of Appeals has determined that a resolution of the dispute between the two factions would require “impermissible inquiries” into religious doctrine (supra, 9 NY3d at 286)."
