Although the Simplified Procedure for Court Determination of Disputes (SPCDD) is not often utilized, its potential for alleviating crowded court dockets merits a critical review. Part I of this Article discusses the history of the SPCDD and describes its provisions. Part II compares the SPCDD with alternative methods of dispute resolution in New York and Part III offers suggestions as to why lawyers are reluctant to take advantage of the simplified procedure. Part IV evaluates the ways in which the SPCDD is particularly compatible with the Individual Assignment System (IAS) and suggests methods for the SPCDD's full implementation.
