Opportunity to Comment on Proposed Change to Commercial Division Rules

The Office of Court Administration has asked for public comment on a proposed amendment to

Rule 31 of the Rules of the Commercial Division (22 NYCRR § 202.70(g), Rule 31). The revisions include: 1) requiring pretrial submissions in Microsoft Word instead of WordPerfect format. 2) changing page limits on memoranda to word limits in order to be consistent with Rule 17, and 3) setting forth procedures for submission of pre-trial information in paperless parts.

E-mail comments on this proposal to rulecomments@nycourts.gov by April 6, 2020.
