ny-map-pinThis piece summarizes several significant civil procedure decisions handed down by the New York Court of Appeals during its 2018-2019 term. Given our space limitations, we have addressed only a portion of the holdings in this arena in a somewhat abbreviated manner. There is something here for personal injury lawyers, commercial litigators, and even those who become involved in arbitration disputes or CPLR Article 78 proceedings. Our selections emphasize those decisions that are most relevant to everyday practice in the Empire State.

There are frequent citations in this piece to David D. Siegel & Patrick M. Connors, New York Practice (Thomson, 6th ed. 2018), where readers can find background on the civil practice issues presented in these cases. The treatise is supplemented biannually (most recently in July) and contains further discussion of the decisions reported below and other significant decisions from various courts.
