NY Lawyers Eye Impact of New Statewide Appellate Rules

The approval of new statewide rules for the New York Supreme Court Appellate Division, one of which reduced from nine months to six the period for perfecting appeals, is expected to result in the automatic dismissal of a passel of civil appeals not perfected by Sept. 14. 

New Rules - On Guard!

While most conscientious appellate practitioners have long-since set a calendar alert for September 17, 2018, marking the effective date for the sweeping changes ushered in by the new "Practice Rules of the Appellate Division" (22 NYCRR Part 1250), most trial practitioners remain blissfully ignorant of exactly how much the landscape will change at the appellate level.
