Verification of Bill of Particulars


David L. Ferstendig

Chapter Summary


This chapter discusses CPLR 3044, Verification of Bill of Particulars. CPLR 3044 provides that a bill of particulars must be verified under certain circumstances. The chapter discusses the need for verification of a bill of particulars when it supplements a verified pleading and when a cause of action alleges negligence.

The chapter explains who may verify the bill of particulars and the required form of verification. In addition, the chapter considers the effect of a bill that is not properly verified and the circumstances under which a defect in verification may be waived.

Finally, this chapter includes a historical appendix discussing the amendments and legislative and judicial reports relating to CPLR 3044, references to related New York State and federal rules, and law reviews discussing CPLR 3044.

New York Civil Practice: CPLR (more commonly known as Weinstein, Korn & Miller) is the leading treatise on New York civil procedure and litigation, and is cited frequently by New York State and Federal courts as the authority on civil practice issues.
