Revised RJI (Request for Judicial Intervention) Form Released
From the New York State Unified Court System:
The Unified Court System has promulgated a revised Request for Judicial Intervention Form (Form USC-840 Rev. 3/2011), and Addenda, for use in civil practice in the Supreme and County Courts. The revisions contained in the new form are the product of extensive research and development by court personnel, as well as commentary from the professional bar.
The new forms include the RJI itself (UCS-840), a general addendum (UCS-840A), and specialized addenda for Commercial Division (UCS-840C), foreclosure (UCS-840F), and matrimonial matters (UCS-840M).
Parties and counsel should employ these new forms immediately and henceforth. However, to avoid unfairness in its introduction, courts and clerks should accept both the new and the former RJI form (Rev. 1/2000) for filing through August 31, 2011.
