The Office of Court Administration has asked for public comment on another proposed change to the rules of the Commercial Division.
The proposed new rule would adopt a
Model Compliance Conference Order Form (“CC Form”) for use in the Commercial Division. The new CC Form is intended to track the expanded Model Preliminary Conference Order Form (“PC Form”) adopted effective June 2, 2014; it presumes that the parties have completed the PC Form and are returning to court a number of months later to report on their progress concerning discovery. As with the PC Form, the proposed new CC Form is intended to serve as a model form and its implementation would not be mandatory.
