What are the consequences of noncompliance with the arbitration-related venue rules that were introduced by a 2000 amendment to CPLR 7502(a)? This issue has become something of a cause c�l�bre in Nassau County, where the Supreme Court has been particularly aggressive in seeking to enforce the new rules.
