The ethical esq. reports on interesting report on Small Claims Courts released today by a "legal reform" group named HALT. New York State received a C grade. The report on New York, found here, is notable for its superficial analysis of the problems of the small claims court system.
From: David Giacalone at prof. yabut's journal: Thanks for linking to my posting. I had the same reaction that the NYS summary is superficial (maybe even a bit silly). However, HALT's overall perspective on small claims courts (and the limitations in NYS, where I live), as seen on the site, seems quite accurate.
