BILL NUMBER:S7641B

TITLE OF BILL:
An act to amend the civil practice law and rules, the general
municipal law, the environmental conservation law, the public
authorities law, the education law, the mental hygiene law, the
private housing finance law, the facilities development corporation
act, the administrative code of the city of New York, and chapter 154
of the laws of 1921 relating to the port authority of New York and New
Jersey, in relation to establishing a uniform process and requirement
for the filing of notices of claim prior to the commencement of a
cause of action against any state or municipal entity, public
authority or public benefit corporation

PURPOSE OF BILL:
The purpose of this bill is to provide plaintiffs with uniform, fair
and statutorily consistent procedure for serving a notice of claim of
intention to commence a proceeding in the courts of this state for
damages suffered as an aggrieved party, and similarly provide for a
statutorily consistent statute of limitations applicable to such
actions.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS OF BILL:
Section 1 of this legislation provides that this act shall be known as
the "Uniform Notice of Claim Act."

Section 2 amends the civil practice law and rules to state that all
notices of claim served on any entity entitled to such a notice as a
condition precedent to the commencement of an action, whether the
relevant statute is expressly amended by the bill or not, are subject
to the requirements of general municipal law 50-e. This section also
provides that the statute of limitations applicable to actions, except
wrongful death actions, against such entities shall be longer of one
year and ninety days or the time period specified in any other
provision of law.

Section 3 amends the civil practice law and rules to state that any
fee imposed by this act shall be a taxable disbursement.

Section 4 amends the general municipal law to allow notices of claim
against any public corporation to be served on the Secretary of State
at a location designated by the Secretary for that purpose, and
requires the Secretary of State to forward a copy to the entity named
in the notice of claim, Service of the notice of claim shall be
complete when served on the Secretary of State.

Section 5 amends the general municipal law to allow court discretion
for service upon either a public corporation or the secretary of
state.

Section 6 amends the general municipal law to require entities
entitled to receive a notice of claim to file a certificate with the
Secretary of State that identifies the tame and address to which the
Secretary of State must transmit notices of claims. Failure of an
entity to file such a certificate will not invalidate any notice of
claim served on the Secretary of State. This section also provides for


a $250 filing fee for service of a notice of claim on the Secretary of
State, with the half of that fee to be retained by the Secretary of
State and the other half provided to the entity or entities named in
the notice of claim.

Sections 7 through 78 amend the specific statutory provisions
governing entities entitled to a notice of claim as a condition
precedent to the commencement of an action. These amendments are
intended to provide unified procedures for filing a notice of claim,
and specifically provide that the time limits contained in general
municipal law 50-e are generally applicable, and amend relevant
statute of limitations to provide a minimum time limit of one year and
ninety clays to bring an action against a public corporation.

JUSTIFICATION:
The current statutes governing the filing of notices of claim and
commencing an action or proceeding against a public corporation have
become confusing and unfairly difficult for all concerned, including
the judiciary and the governmental entities involved. Over the years,
this legislature has granted state-created governmental and
quasi-governmental bodies the right to require that notification of
claims to be made against them were to be made by requiring them to
receive a notice of claim or other comparable document as a condition
precedent to commencement of an action or proceeding. These various
requirements in law have resulted in a multiplicity of sometimes
disparate and confusing procedural rules and time limits. Further, the
number of entities entitled by law to such notification has grown over
the years to a large though uncertain number, and each entity often
has its own statutory entitlement to service within a timeframe, at a
certain place and in a manner not at all congruent with one another.
This existing patchwork of statutes governing claims against
government are neither consistent with one another, nor are they all
catalogued or contained in the same, similar or readily locatable
sections of the chaptered laws. The result is that even the most
diligent, conscientious and able potential claimant can be misled in
good faith by the lack of a uniform procedure for filing notices of
claim and bringing actions against governmental and quasi-
governmental entities.

In addition, costly, time-consuming and resource-wasting litigation
often ensues over arcane issues of notice of claim service and other
procedural quirks, unnecessarily burdening the courts as well as the
agencies involved, while at the same time undermining public
confidence in the reasonableness and rationality of New York's laws.
This bill will provide a uniform, fair and easily engaged method of
notice of claim service via the secretary of state in addition to
those methods of service already existing, and thus provide a degree
of uniformity to procedural rules governing actions against
governmental and quasi- governmental entities.

This bill is not intended to limit, alter, eliminate or otherwise
nullify existing provisions of law relating to the service of a notice
of claim, but only as a means of providing an alternative method for
satisfying the condition precedent to the commencement of an action or
proceeding against a public corporation.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:


This is a new bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS:
It is anticipated that this bill will provide for a net revenue gain
to localities and to the State.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect one hundred and eighty days from the date
upon which it shall have become a law and shall apply to all actions
and proceedings accruing on and after such date; provided, however,
that section 78 of this act shall take effect upon the enactment into
law by the state of New Jersey of legislation having an identical
effect with section 78 of this act, but if the state of New Jersey
shall have enacted such legislation into law prior to the first day of
January next succeeding the date upon which this act shall have become
a law, section 78 of this act shall take effect one hundred and eighty
days from the date upon which it shall have become a law.

ANY  PUBLIC  CORPORATION WHATSOEVER CREATED OR EXISTING BY VIRTUE OF THE

PERSONALLY DELIVERING TO AND LEAVING WITH THE SECRETARY OF  STATE  OR  A

FIED MAIL, RETURN RECEIPT REQUESTED, TO SUCH PUBLIC CORPORATION, AT  THE
POST  OFFICE  ADDRESS, ON FILE IN THE DEPARTMENT OF STATE, SPECIFIED FOR
THE PURPOSE.
  S 5. Subdivision 5 of section 50-e of the general  municipal  law,  as
amended  by  chapter  12  of  the  laws  of  2010, is amended to read as
follows:
  5. Application for leave to serve a late notice.
  Upon application, the court, in its discretion, may extend the time to
serve a notice of claim specified in paragraph (a) of subdivision one of
this section, WHETHER SUCH SERVICE WAS MADE UPON A PUBLIC CORPORATION OR
THE SECRETARY OF STATE. The extension shall not exceed the time  limited
for  the  commencement  of  an action by the claimant against the public
corporation. In determining whether to grant the  extension,  the  court
shall  consider,  in  particular,  whether the public corporation or its
attorney or its insurance  carrier  acquired  actual  knowledge  of  the
essential  facts  constituting  the  claim  within the time specified in
subdivision one of this section or within a reasonable time  thereafter.
The  court  shall  also  consider  all  other relevant facts and circum-
stances, including: whether the claimant was an infant, or  mentally  or
physically incapacitated, or died before the time limited for service of
the  notice  of  claim;  whether  the  claimant failed to serve a timely
notice of claim by reason of his justifiable  reliance  upon  settlement
representations  made  by  an  authorized  representative  of the public
corporation or its insurance carrier; whether the claimant in serving  a
notice  of  claim made an excusable error concerning the identity of the
public corporation against  which  the  claim  should  be  asserted;  if
service of the notice of claim is attempted by electronic means pursuant
to paragraph (e) of subdivision three of this section, whether the delay
in serving the notice of claim was based upon the failure of the comput-

S. 7641--B                          3

er  system  of the city or the claimant or the attorney representing the
claimant; that such claimant or attorney, as the case may be,  submitted
evidence  or  proof  as is reasonable showing that (i) the submission of
the claim was attempted to be electronically made in a timely manner and
would  have  been  completed  but for the failure of the computer system
utilized by the sender or recipient, and (ii) that upon  becoming  aware
of  both  the  failure  of  such  system  and the failure of the city to
receive such submission, the claimant or attorney had insufficient  time
to  make  such  claim  within  the  permitted time period in a manner as
otherwise prescribed by law; and whether the delay in serving the notice
of claim substantially prejudiced the public corporation in  maintaining
its defense on the merits.
  An application for leave to serve a late notice shall not be denied on
the  ground that it was made after commencement of an action against the
public corporation.
  S 6. The general municipal law is amended by adding a new  section  53
to read as follows:
  S  53.  ALTERNATIVE  SERVICE  OF NOTICE OF CLAIM UPON THE SECRETARY OF
STATE. 1. IN LIEU OF SERVING A NOTICE OF CLAIM UPON A PUBLIC CORPORATION
AS PROVIDED FOR IN SECTION FIFTY-E OF THIS ARTICLE, A  NOTICE  OF  CLAIM
SETTING  FORTH  THE  SAME INFORMATION AS REQUIRED BY SUCH SECTION MAY BE
SERVED UPON THE SECRETARY OF STATE IN THE SAME MANNER AS IF SERVED  WITH
THE  PUBLIC  CORPORATION.  ALL  THE  REQUIREMENTS  RELATING TO THE FORM,
CONTENT, TIME LIMITATIONS, EXCEPTIONS, EXTENSIONS AND ANY  OTHER  PROCE-
DURAL  REQUIREMENTS  IMPOSED IN SUCH SECTION WITH RESPECT TO A NOTICE OF
CLAIM SERVED UPON A PUBLIC CORPORATION SHALL CORRESPONDINGLY APPLY TO  A
NOTICE  OF CLAIM SERVED UPON THE SECRETARY OF STATE AS PERMITTED BY THIS
SECTION. FOR PURPOSES OF THIS ARTICLE, THE SECRETARY OF STATE  SHALL  BE
DEEMED TO BE THE AGENT FOR ALL PUBLIC CORPORATIONS UPON WHOM A NOTICE OF
CLAIM  MAY  BE  SERVED PRIOR TO COMMENCEMENT OF ANY ACTION OR PROCEEDING
SUBJECT TO THE REQUIREMENTS OF THIS ARTICLE.
  2. THE SECRETARY OF STATE SHALL DESIGNATE AN OFFICE WITHIN THE DEPART-
MENT OF STATE WHEREAT PERSONS ARE ENTITLED BY  LAW  TO  TIMELY  SERVE  A
NOTICE  OF  CLAIM  UPON THE SECRETARY OF STATE AS THE AGENT FOR A PUBLIC
CORPORATION AS A CONDITION PRECEDENT TO COMMENCEMENT  OF  AN  ACTION  OR
PROCEEDING.  ALL PUBLIC CORPORATIONS ENTITLED TO HAVE SERVED UPON THEM A
NOTICE OF CLAIM AS A CONDITION PRECEDENT TO COMMENCEMENT OF AN ACTION OR

AND  ADDRESS OF AN OFFICER, PERSON, OR DESIGNEE, NOMINEE OR OTHER AGENT-
IN-FACT FOR THE TRANSMITTAL OF NOTICES OF CLAIM SERVED UPON  THE  SECRE-
TARY  AS  THE  PUBLIC  CORPORATION'S  AGENT.  ANY DESIGNATED POST-OFFICE
ADDRESS TO WHICH THE SECRETARY OF STATE SHALL MAIL A COPY OF THE  NOTICE
OF  CLAIM  SERVED  UPON  HIM  OR  HER  AS AGENT SHALL CONTINUE TO BE THE
ADDRESS TO WHICH SUCH NOTICES SHALL BE MAILED UNTIL  THE  PUBLIC  CORPO-
RATION  SENDS  A  NOTICE  TO THE SECRETARY INFORMING HIM OR HER OF A NEW
ADDRESS TO WHICH SUCH NOTICES SHALL BE MAILED. THE INITIAL  FILING  WITH
THE  SECRETARY OF STATE SHALL ALSO CONTAIN THE APPLICABLE TIME LIMIT FOR
FILING A NOTICE OF CLAIM UPON  THAT  PUBLIC  CORPORATION,  OR  IF  LATER
CHANGED  BY  STATUTE,  A  NEW FILING SHALL BE MADE DETAILING THE ALTERED
TIME LIMIT. ANY PUBLIC CORPORATION WHO DOES NOT HAVE A CURRENT AND TIME-
LY STATUTORY DESIGNATION FILED WITH THE SECRETARY OF STATE SHALL NOT  BE
ENTITLED  TO THE PORTION OF THE FEE TO WHICH IT WOULD OTHERWISE BE ENTI-
TLED PURSUANT TO SUBDIVISION FOUR OF  THIS  SECTION.    FAILURE  OF  THE

S. 7641--B                          4

PUBLIC  CORPORATION  TO  SO  FILE  WITH  THE SECRETARY OF STATE WILL NOT
INVALIDATE ANY SERVICE OF A NOTICE OF CLAIM UPON THE PUBLIC  CORPORATION
WHICH HAS BEEN RECEIVED BY THE SECRETARY OF STATE.
  3. THE SECRETARY OF STATE IS HEREBY EMPOWERED TO ACCEPT PROPERLY TRAN-
SMITTED  NOTICES  OF  CLAIMS ON BEHALF OF A PUBLIC CORPORATION, WITH THE
SAME EFFECT AS IF SERVED DIRECTLY UPON A PUBLIC CORPORATION. THE  SECRE-
TARY  OF  STATE  SHALL  ACCEPT SUCH SERVICE UPON THE FOLLOWING TERMS AND
CONDITIONS:

OF  STATE SHALL TRANSMIT AN ORIGINAL OR A COPY OF THE NOTICE OF CLAIM TO

  (D) NOTHING IN THIS SECTION SHALL BE DEEMED TO ALTER, WAIVE OR  OTHER-
WISE  ABROGATE  ANY  DEFENSE AVAILABLE TO A PUBLIC CORPORATION AS TO THE
NATURE, SUFFICIENCY, OR APPROPRIATENESS OF THE NOTICE OF  CLAIM  ITSELF,
OR  TO  ANY  CHALLENGES  TO THE TIMELINESS OF THE SERVICE OF A NOTICE OF
CLAIM.  TIMELY SERVICE UPON THE SECRETARY OF STATE SHALL BE DEEMED TIME-
LY SERVICE UPON THE PUBLIC CORPORATION FOR PURPOSES  OF  INSTITUTING  AN
ACTION OR PROCEEDING OR OTHER REQUIREMENT IMPOSED BY LAW.
  4.  THE SECRETARY OF STATE MAY IMPOSE A FEE UPON ANY PERSON WHO SERVES
A NOTICE OF CLAIM WITH THE DEPARTMENT. SUCH FEE  SHALL  NOT  EXCEED  TWO
HUNDRED  FIFTY  DOLLARS  FOR EACH SUCH NOTICE FILED. ONE-HALF OF THE FEE
IMPOSED SHALL BE RETAINED BY THE SECRETARY OF STATE AS PAYMENT  FOR  ITS
SERVICES  PROVIDED  IN  ACCORDANCE  WITH  THIS  SECTION.  THE  REMAINING
ONE-HALF OF SUCH FEE SHALL BE FORWARDED TO THE PUBLIC CORPORATION  NAMED
IN  THE  NOTICE OF CLAIM PROVIDED, HOWEVER, IF MORE THAN ONE SUCH PUBLIC
CORPORATION IS NAMED, EACH NAMED PUBLIC CORPORATION SHALL BE ENTITLED TO
AN EQUAL PERCENTAGE OF THE ONE-HALF AMOUNT.

DATE  OF  THIS  SECTION  POST  ON THE DEPARTMENTAL WEBSITE A LIST OF ANY

A  CONDITION  PRECEDENT  TO COMMENCEMENT OF AN ACTION OR PROCEEDING, AND
THAT HAS FILED, PURSUANT TO THIS SECTION, A CERTIFICATE WITH THE  SECRE-
TARY  OF  STATE  DESIGNATING THE SECRETARY AS THE AGENT FOR SERVICE OF A
NOTICE OF CLAIM. THE LIST SHOULD IDENTIFY THE ENTITY, THE ADDRESS OF THE
PUBLIC CORPORATION TO WHICH THE NOTICE OF CLAIM SHALL  BE  FORWARDED  BY
THE SECRETARY OF STATE, AND ANY STATUTORY PROVISIONS UNIQUELY PERTAINING
TO SUCH PUBLIC CORPORATION AND THE COMMENCEMENT OF AN ACTION OR PROCEED-
ING AGAINST IT.
