Opportunity to Comment on Proposed Change to Joint Rules of the Appellate Division

The Office of Court Administration has asked for public comment on a proposed change to the Joint Rules of the Appellate Division.

The proposed new rule would require law firm engagement letters to inform clients about the ADR programs available on the Unified Court System’s website.

E-mail comments to rulecomments@nycourts.gov by September 8, 2014.

NOTE: Schlam Stone & Dolan partner John M. Lundin was a member of the City Bar Association Committee on Alternative Dispute Resolution, which recommended this rule change.
