The Daily Bulletin recently published an article about new rules governing civil litigation in New York. According to Charisma Troiano, the author of the article in 2013 the Office of Court Administration issued a letter supporting proposed changes to the New York Civil Procedure Legal Rules Section 2106. The new rule allows affirmations obtained outside of the United States, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands to hold the same evidentiary weight as a sworn affidavit within the United States. Adam Gana supported the new rule.
