Death or incompetency of a party
Civil Practice Law & Rules (CVP) CHAPTER 8, ARTICLE 75
§ 7512. Death or incompetency of a party. Where a party dies after
making a written agreement to submit a controversy to arbitration, the
proceedings may be begun or continued upon the application of, or upon
notice to, his executor or administrator or, where it relates to real
property, his distributee or devisee who has succeeded to his interest
in the real property. Where a committee of the property or of the person
of a party to such an agreement is appointed, the proceedings may be
continued upon the application of, or notice to, the committee. Upon the
death or incompetency of a party, the court may extend the time within
which an application to confirm, vacate or modify the award or to stay
arbitration must be made. Where a party has died since an award was
delivered, the proceedings thereupon are the same as where a party dies
after a verdict.
