Welcome to the web site of the Litigation Coordinating Panel of the Unified Court System of the State of New York.  The Panel receives and resolves applications for the coordination of litigation that is pending in more than one judicial district of the State.  The coordination of multiple lawsuits from a variety of venues in a single district before a single Coordinating Justice can facilitate the consistent, efficient resolution of many cases. Coordination pursuant to order of the Panel is for pre-trial proceedings only.  Cases that are ready for trial are returned to the counties of origin for that purpose unless the parties stipulate otherwise. 

The Office of the Clerk of the Panel is located in the Supreme Court, Civil Branch, New York County.  As appropriate under the circumstances, the Panel may hear argument on applications in New York County or elsewhere around the State.

It is the hope of the Panel that users will find this website informative and helpful.

Hon. Joseph J. Maltese
Presiding Justice


Supreme Court, N.Y. County - CIVIL BRANCH
