Comments on Proposed Commercial Division Rule Changes and New Model Compliance Conference Form


Comments were sent to the NYS Office of Court Administration regarding the following proposals by the Unified Court System’s Commercial Division Advisory Council: (1) a proposed amendment of Commercial Division Rule 14 relating to discovery disputes; (2) a proposed new Commercial Division rule relating to responses and objections to document requests; and (3) a proposed new model compliance conference order form for use in the Commercial Division. The comments, reflecting input from the Council on Judicial Administration and the Committees on Litigation and State Courts of Superior Jurisdiction, supported the first item with a suggestion and made a number of recommendations with regard to the latter two proposals.
