The Court of Appeals of the State of New York has amended its Rules of Practice relating to amicus curiae relief (Rule 500.23) to require that proposed amicus indicates if a party, a party's counsel, or any other person or entity contributed to the preparation or funding of an amicus brief. Rule 500.12 was also amended to specify that reply briefs by amicus curiae are not permitted.
The amendments to the rules are effective May 16, 2018. A copy of the Court's order amending the rules can be found here: notice to the bar.
