Section 460.90 - [Effective Until September 1, 2022]Filing of papers on appeal to the appellate division by electronic means

Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the appellate division in each judicial department may promulgate rules authorizing a program in the use of electronic means for the taking and perfection of appeals in accordance with the provisions of section twenty-one hundred twelve of the civil practice law and rules. Provided however, such rules shall not require an unrepresented party or any attorney who furnishes a certification specified in subparagraph (i) or (ii) of paragraph (c) of subdivision two of section 10.40 of this chapter to take or perfect an appeal by electronic means. Provided further, however, before promulgating any such rules, the appellate division in each judicial department shall consult with the chief administrator of the courts and shall provide an opportunity for review and comment by all those who are or would be affected including district attorneys; representatives of the office of indigent legal services; not-for-profit legal service providers; public defenders; statewide and local specialty bar associations whose membership devotes a significant portion of their practice to assigned criminal cases pursuant to subparagraph (i) of paragraph (a) of subdivision three of section seven hundred twenty-two of the county law; institutional providers of criminal defense services and other members of the criminal defense bar; representatives of victims' rights organizations; unaffiliated attorneys who regularly appear in proceedings that are or would be affected by such electronic filing program; interested members of the criminal justice community; and any other persons in whose county a program has been implemented in any of the courts therein as deemed to be appropriate by any appellate division. To the extent practicable, rules promulgated by the appellate division in each judicial department pursuant to this section shall be uniform. For purposes of this section, "electronic means" shall be as defined in subdivision (f) of rule twenty-one hundred three of such law and rules.
