2006 New York Code - Parts For The Determination Of Commercial Claims Established.

    §   1802-A.   Parts   for   the  determination  of  commercial  claims
  established. The chief administrator shall assign the times  and  places
  for  holding,  and  the  judges who shall hold, one or more parts of the
  court in each county for the hearing  of  commercial  claims  as  herein
  defined,   and  the  rules  may  regulate  the  practice  and  procedure
  controlling the determination of such claims and prescribe  and  furnish
  the  forms for instituting the same. There shall be at least one evening
  session of each part every month for the hearing of  commercial  claims,
  provided however, that the chief administrator may provide for exemption
  from  this  requirement  where  there  exists  no  demonstrated need for
  evening sessions. The chief administrator shall not  combine  commercial
  claims  part  actions  with  small  claims  part actions for purposes of
  convenience unless  a  preference  is  given  to  small  claims  and  to
  commercial  claims  arising out of consumer transactions. Such practice,
  procedure and forms shall differ from the practice, procedure and  forms
  used  in  the  court  for other than small claims and commercial claims,
  notwithstanding any  provision  of  law  to  the  contrary.  They  shall
  constitute  a  simple, informal and inexpensive procedure for the prompt
  determination of commercial claims in  accordance  with  the  rules  and
  principles  of  substantive  law.  The procedure established pursuant to
  this article shall not be exclusive of but shall be alternative  to  the
  procedure now or hereafter established with respect to actions commenced
  in the court by the service of a summons. No rule to be enacted pursuant
  to  this  article  shall  dispense  with or interfere with the taking of
  stenographic minutes of any hearing of any commercial claim hereunder.
