    ABOUT THE NEW YORK STATE LAW DIGEST

    Virtually all state court practitioners, no matter their particular specialties, have one thing in common: they have to navigate the vagaries of state practice and procedure. The New York State Law Digest publishes significant procedural developments, whether they come from important decisions of the Court of Appeals or other New York state (or federal) courts, statutory or rule amendments or particular local practice issues. The Law Digest keeps NYSBA members updated on issues that impact their everyday practices of law. Edited by David L. Ferstendig, the Law Digest is published monthly and distributed to members free of charge, as a benefit of membership.
