Part Rules for Mental Hygiene Part 77M & 77AOTM


360 Adams Street
Brooklyn, NY 11201

Revised October 7, 2013

ADMISSION OF DOCUMENTARY EVIDENCE

Any documentary evidence, including medical/hospital records, regardless of form (hard copy, electronic or virtual record), sought to be admitted for hearing must be made available to opposing counsel at least 24 hours prior to the initial date of the subject hearing. The parties may prepare a written stipulation with respect to admissibility issues, if any. A Court copy of the stipulation if any, and the portions of the record in dispute, must be delivered to the part by 9:30 A.M. on the date of the hearing.

In any event the parties must confer in order to attempt to reach an accord with respect to the admissibility of the subject documentary evidence. The Court expects that the parties will make a good faith effort to resolve all evidentiary issues.

COMPLIANCE

Failure to comply with this rule may result in the imposition of sanctions, including but not limited to, removal of the hearing from the Court’s calendar or the exclusion of evidence.
