Rule 3222. Action on submitted facts. (a) Commencement. An action, except a matrimonial action, may be commenced by filing with the clerk a submission of the controversy, acknowledged by all parties in the form required to entitle a deed to be recorded. The submission shall consist of a case, containing a statement of the facts upon which the controversy depends, and a statement that the controversy is real and that the submission is made in good faith for the purpose of determining the rights of the parties. If made to the supreme court, the submission shall specify the particular county clerk with whom the papers are to be filed.
(b) Subsequent proceedings. Subsequent proceedings shall be had according to the civil practice law and rules except that:
1. an order of attachment or a preliminary injunction shall not be granted;
2. the controversy shall be determined on the case alone;
3. if the submission is made to the supreme court, it shall be heard and determined either by the court, or by the appellate division, or, with his consent, by a specified judge or referee, as the parties may stipulate;
4. on such a submission the court, judge or referee may find facts by inference from the facts stipulated; and
5. if the statement of facts in the case is not sufficient to enable the court to enter judgment the submission shall be dismissed or the court shall allow the filing of an additional statement.
