NY State Courts Launch Small Claims ODR

Big news out of New York — the NY State Courts have launched their first ODR system for small claims cases: https://lnkd.in/e_RZGDk. This system, based on underlying technology from Matterhorn, is the first time a technology-based dispute resolution process has been introduced into the NY state court system.

This launch is due in no small part to hard work from NCTDR Fellows David Larson and Amy Schmitz and Vikki Rogers who worked pro bono for years in NY (with many fits and starts) to build support for such a system.

The NY State system launched one week ago and represents a historic leap forward in expanding access to justice. Kudos to all the team members who made it happen — we can’t wait to see where this will lead!
