Abstract:     
This article examines the events in litigation that typically result in a CPLR 3216 conditional order requiring disclosure, which require the expenditure of substantial time and expense for the parties and the court system. We then turn to recent decisions in which conditional orders have issued and examine the propriety and effect of those orders. The piece then discusses several established remedies available under the CPLR to a party subject to a CPLR 3126 conditional order. These broad remedies cast further doubt on the utility of the doctrine invoked by several courts that allows a court to vacate or modify a conditional order based merely on a reasonable excuse and affidavit of merit.
