Does case status disposed mean that the case will be closed

Resolved Question:

Does case status disposed mean that the case will be closed and if so, then how long does it usually take in New York??

I'm assuming you're referring to a statement you saw perhaps on a clerk of court's website, or something similar. When a case has been marked "disposed" that means it is already closed. This does not, however, indicate HOW the case was closed. It may have been by a plea, a trial or even a dismissal by the prosecutor.

On E court it says case deposed 5/5/09. However, on May 21, 2009, my lawyer sent a letter to me, that the case is awaiting automatic dismissmal by the court and that I need to wait. Does that make sense?
