Please join the growing Statewide Coalition for Court Simplification.
This form asks you to join coalition and offer suggestions to advance the campaign.
We would greatly appreciate your input on the best ways to advance this policy. Modern Courts and others are reaching out to business leaders, elected officials, stakeholders but that is one small piece, to move this policy forward all outreach, suggestions, etc. are important.
Summary: The eleven separate trial courts comprising the first level of the Unified Court System disserves New Yorkers by making access to justice unnecessarily complicated, inefficient, and expensive. A constitutional amendment restructuring these courts into a single court of first instance will streamline delivery of judicial services, save money, and remedy an inflexible and illogical system that disproportionately burdens families and inadvertently thwarts the appointment of women and minorities to New York’s appellate courts.
