SECTION 1101
Disclosure
Uniform City Court Act (UCT) CHAPTER 497, ARTICLE 11
§ 1101. Disclosure.

(a) CPLR applicable. The procedures set forth in the CPLR relative to
disclosure, bill of particulars and the procuring of a copy of the items
of an account, shall govern in this court, subject to paragraph (b).

(b) Parties and non-parties. All notices, orders, subpoenas and other
papers relating to disclosure:

1. by a party, may be served in any part of the county or any
adjoining county and shall be served by such means as would be
permissible in the supreme court in a like instance;

2. by a person not a party, may be served and executed only within the
county, unless the court shall find that the interests of justice
require that service not be so limited, in which case the court may
permit service as in paragraph one. Such permission may be granted only
after motion on notice to all adverse parties.

(c) Protective order. The protective order provided for in CPLR § 3103
shall be available in this court with regard to all of the foregoing,
and shall not be limited to the disclosure devices provided in article
31 of the CPLR.

(d) Extra-territorial disclosure. In any case where disclosure would
be available in the supreme court in a like case, but is unavailable in
this court by virtue of any territorial limitation upon its
jurisdiction, the court may, upon motion on notice to all adverse
parties, make an order to obtain disclosure from a source without the
city, county or state by the use of any device to which the supreme
court might resort to obtain disclosure from a source without the state.
