SECTION 206
Arbitration
Uniform City Court Act (UCT) CHAPTER 497, ARTICLE 2
§ 206. Arbitration.

(a) Threshold questions under article seventy-five of the civil
practice law and rules. If an action of which the court has jurisdiction
has been duly commenced therein, and there arise in such action any
questions relating to the arbitrability of the controversy, the court
shall have jurisdiction completely to dispose of such questions and
article seventy-five of the civil practice law and rules shall be
applicable thereto. But the court shall not have jurisdiction of the
special proceeding, as set forth in subdivision (a) of section
seventy-five hundred two of the civil practice law and rules, used to
bring before a court the first application arising out of an arbitrable
controversy, except as provided in subdivision (b) of this section.

(b) Proceedings on award under article seventy-five of the civil
practice law and rules. Where a controversy has been duly arbitrated and
an award made therein is for relief which is within the court's
jurisdiction, the court shall have jurisdiction of proceedings under
sections seventy-five hundred ten through seventy-five hundred fourteen
of the civil practice law and rules, relating to judicial recognition of
such awards, which provisions shall be applicable thereto.

(c) Arbitration distinct from article seventy-five of the civil
practice law and rules. The rules may provide systems of arbitration and
conciliation of claims within the court's jurisdiction without reference
to article seventy-five of the civil practice law and rules.
