Opportunity to Comment on Proposed Change to Commercial Division Rules

The Office of Court Administration has asked for public comment on a proposed change to the rules of the Commercial Division that would amend the eligibility criteria for assignment to the Commercial Division by (1) limiting “arbitration proceedings that may be heard in the Commercial Division to those that meet the monetary threshold for the applicable County or Judicial District, except for “arbitration proceedings heard outside the United States,” which “would remain exempt from the monetary threshold requirement,” and (2) “would add home improvement contracts involving certain residential properties to the list of matters that are not eligible to be heard in the Commercial Division.”

E-mail comments on this proposal to rulecomments@nycourts.gov by June 10, 2015.
