New York Commercial Division Adopts Rule on Deposition Limits

January 23, 2015 download PDF

The Commercial Division Advisory Council was created in 2013 as a follow up to Chief Judge Jonathan Lippman's Task Force on Commercial Litigation in the 21st Century.   The Council's goal is to advise the Chief Judge on an ongoing basis about matters concerning the Commercial Division of the Supreme Court of New York, to consider how the Commercial Division can better serve the needs of the business community and the changing economy, and to implement the recommendations of the Task Force's 2012 comprehensive report.   

This memorandum is the fourth in a series alerting clients to changes to the practice rules within New York's Commercial Division.  This memorandum addresses the new Rule 11-d of Section 202.70(g) (Rules of Practice for the Commercial Division) of the Uniform Civil Rules for the Supreme Court and the County Court (the "Uniform Rules"), which sets presumptive limits on the number and duration of depositions by parties litigating in the Commercial Division.
