(a) To the extent possible, disputes relating to investigations should be resolved through informal procedures such as conferences and not through enforcement practices. Article 21 Courtesy copies. Courtesy copies should not be submitted unless requested or as indicated herein. However, courtesy copies of all application documents and proposed orders must be submitted electronically by the court in cases in the filing system. (b) Unless otherwise ordered by the court, hearings shall be limited to the names of witnesses who have knowledge of the information documents necessary for the subject-matter of the claim, the calculation of each category of damage and the existence, preservation, location and general description of the physical and necessary documents, including relevant insurance contracts; and other physical evidence. Article 26 Duration of the probationary period. At least ten days before the trial or on any other date fixed by the court, the parties shall submit to the court, after considering the expected testimony and, if necessary, after hearing their witnesses, a realistic estimate of the duration of the hearing. At the request of the court, the estimate also includes a request from each party to indicate the total number of hours that each party considers necessary for its direct hearing, cross-examination, reconsideration and reasoning during the trial. The court may decide on the total number of hours of hearing it grants to each party. The court may, at its discretion, extend the total number of hours of hearings if the judiciary so requires. It is explicitly provided that the parties will be informed of the alleged infringement and will have the opportunity to comment before sanctions are imposed. Whether the case should be decided solely on the basis of written submissions or scheduled for oral proceedings (or even for evidence) depends on the circumstances.

Where the court imposes a penalty, it shall, unless otherwise specified, state the reasons for the penalty in a written order or in the record; The Court should not normally have to give reasons for rejecting a request for sanctions. Whether there has been a violation and, if so, what sanctions should be imposed for a violation is left to the discretion of the trial court; Therefore, as under the current legislation, the benchmark for reviewing these decisions will be abuse of authority. See Cooter & Gell v. Hartmarx Corp., 496 U.S. 384 (1990) (although it is noted that abuse occurs when the court bases its decision on an incorrect interpretation of the law or on a manifestly erroneous evaluation of the evidence). The court has a variety of possible sanctions that can be imposed in case of violation, such as beating the offending paper; issue a reprimand, reprimand or reprimand; require participation in seminars or other educational programs; order a fine payable to the court; Referral of the case to disciplinary authorities (or, in the case of prosecutors, to the Attorney General, the Inspector General or the Head of Authority), etc. See Complex Litigation Handbook, second, § 42.3. The rule does not seek to enumerate the factors that a court should consider when deciding whether or not to impose a sanction or what sanctions would be appropriate in the circumstances; However, to underline, it is explicitly stated that a sanction can be both non-monetary and monetary. whether the inappropriate conduct was intentional or negligent; whether it was part of an isolated business model or event; whether it infected the entire plea or only a particular charge or defence; whether the person has behaved in the same way in other legal disputes; if it was intended to violate the law; the impact it had on the litigation in terms of time or cost; whether the person in charge has received legal training; the amount, taking into account the financial resources of the responsible person, to prevent the latter from re-offending the same case; How much is needed to prevent similar activities by other litigants: all of this may be appropriate considerations in a particular case. The General Court has considerable discretion to decide on the sanctions to be imposed in the event of an infringement, if any, subject to the principle that penalties should not be more severe than reasonably necessary to prevent a repetition of the offender`s conduct or comparable behaviour by persons in a similar situation.

(c) Request for a jury trial. Where an answer arises a question of fact which may be heard by a jury in proceedings concerning the ownership of immovable property, any party or party to the registration proceedings who is entitled to have such a question decided may, within 20 days of the joinder of the case, refer the matter to the competent authority or judge: have the questions dealt with by a jury. pursuant to paragraph 4102(b) of the CPLF. The hearing of these questions takes place and the subsequent procedure in this context is that prescribed by the CPLR. After dealing with these matters, either party to the registration proceedings may, with eight days` notice, apply to the competent authority or the judge for a final decision on the registration of all persons who have appeared in the registration proceedings and, upon such request, the court shall decide on all other matters of the proceedings on which the jury has not ruled. or may refer unresolved issues to an official reviewer of the title of arbitrator. Once all the issues have been resolved, any party may, with eight days` notice to all persons who appeared in the proceedings, apply to the competent body or to the competent judge for the final decision and judgment on the registration. 3. Where appropriate, the Tribunal may order the parties, representatives of the parties, representatives of insurance companies or any other person having an interest in a settlement to attend the settlement conference in person, by telephone or by other electronic means.

Documents must also comply with Part 130 of the Chief Administrator Rules. Any legal memorandum transmitted electronically and, where applicable, any affidavit and confirmation must contain bookmarks that list the contents of the document and facilitate the reader`s navigation through the document. (3) Nothing herein prevents the court from omitting or redacting more confidential personal information than is required by this rule, whether at the request of a party or sua sponte.

Following the institution of an action admissible by electronic filing, documents may be filed and served electronically, but only by one or more parties who have consented to it, and service may be effected only on them.

A party who has not consented to participate must file documents with the court and the county clerk and serve paper documents. Where an electronic depositor serves a paper document on a non-participating party, the document served shall bear the full signature of all signatories and proof of such service shall be submitted electronically.
