From the NYSBA:
The New York State Court of Appeals has issued a notice to the bar about digital filings through a companion upload portal similar to the state court's Court-PASS system.
The Court of Appeals has amended its Rules of Practice to require, for motions and responses to Rule 500.10 jurisdictional inquiries, submissions in digital format as companions to the printed papers that are filed and served.
In the notice to the bar, John P. Asiello, chief clerk and legal counsel to the Court of Appeals, explained that the court has also amended its Rules of Practice to reduce the number of printed copies that must be filed from six to one for civil motions for leave to appeal, reargument motions and papers in opposition to those motions.
Motions submitted with proof of indigency may still be made on one set of papers. Parties can request to be relieved of the digital submission requirements based on a showing of undue hardship.
The amended rules are effective May 27, 2020. Any responses to Rule 500.10 jurisdictional inquiries requested on or after May 27 and any motions returnable on or after June 1, must comply with the amended rules.
