Opportunity to Comment on Proposed Change to Commercial Division Rules

The Office of Court Administration has asked for public comment on yet another proposed change to the rules of the Commercial Division.

The proposed new rule would add a preamble to the Commercial Division Rules

that (a) acknowledges the problems caused by dilatory tactics and counsel who fail to appear for conferences, (b) directs litigants and their counsel who use the Commercial Division to familiarize themselves with the numerous sanctions provisions in the Rules, and (c) advises that Commercial Division judges will impose sanctions as the circumstances warrant in order to enforce compliance with case management orders and discovery schedules.
