Pursuant to Chapter 416 of the Laws of 2009, mandatory electronic filing will be instituted in this Court soon in certain commercial cases (“mandatory commercial cases”). The target date for commencement of this program is May 24, 2010. A Uniform Rule is being drafted that will set forth the procedures for mandatory e-filing. Although that Rule will, of course, control, the following are the key aspects of mandatory e-filing that the Court at present expects to implement. If upon issuance of the Rule any changes in procedures are required, the Court will provide notice thereof as expeditiously as possible.
