Court Simplification and Rural Access to Justice

By Elizabeth A. Garry, Presiding Justice, Appellate Division, Third Department

The New York Law Journal published Justice Elizabeth Garry’s article mentioning the Task Force on Rural Justice.

As some of you may recall, last year I used this space to address access to justice in rural communities. This year, I wish to share an update, with focus upon the related and ongoing effort to implement a court simplification plan—an issue that has been discussed for decades, which will hopefully progress into action now.
