Court Simplification

New York’s Court System is a relic from the 19th century.

To provide justice today, we must modernize the New York State court system.

Our present multiple court system creates confusion among the people the courts are supposed to serve, gives judges only partial ability to see the full picture of the case, wastes time for litigants which often results in loss of work and wages, and generates a system that is difficult, if not impossible, to understand.

Simplification will remove the barriers that impact litigants, families, victims, local government, small business, lawyers, nonprofit organizations, judges and court personnel and anyone who uses the courts because it will integrate the courts in a way that eliminates the need to go to different courts for different yet related issues. Court simplification will permit more resources to go to the courts that need them the most.
