The deadline for public comment by e-mail about the proposed order of discovery is TOMORROW.
Information about this proposal, or about the tomorrow's deadline on a new court rule that will adversely affect ALL criminal defendant,, is not publicized by either the New York court system, nor by the Justice Task Force itself.
The New York State Unified Court System did not prominently include this proposal into its "What's New" notifications, see the scan I have obtained today from NYS Unified Court System website:
Nor did the Justice Task Force advertise the deadline or the proposal on its own website, see the scan I also obtained today:
So, when such an important rule is being proposed - and promoted - and both the court system which pushes the rule, and the "Task Force" (consisting of those for whom more convictions mean career promotions), do not publicize it prominently, and do not clearly state for the public the deadline, I would assert that there is no public notice, and the rule is not legally valid.
With that, I encourage those who read my blog, to send their own comments as to this rule.
The deadline for public comment by e-mail is tomorrow.
