New Law in the City and State

The practice of law is an ever-changing landscape. What worked one quarter might not be as effective the next, and new clients or new ways of serving them often demand a fresh approach. Whether a law firm focuses on helping underserved communities or developing innovative strategies for attracting business, many legal professionals are exploring the concept of “new law.” While it’s hard to pin down exactly what that means, it generally encompasses practices and techniques that go beyond traditional approaches.

In this article, we will take a closer look at the concept of new law and explore how it’s being embraced by various organizations throughout the city and state. We’ll also examine a few of the most recent developments relating to this concept, including changes in NYC law and rule.

New York’s bail reform law has been changed after just three months in effect. The amendments were intended to address concerns that the original version of the law might have resulted in unnecessary jail time for people charged with crimes who could not afford to pay cash bail. Rather than completely eliminating the use of cash bail, the revisions allow judges to impose bail in more situations and give them more discretion in setting bail and other conditions of pretrial release.

The Department of Consumer and Worker Protection is changing its rules regarding the licensing of third-party food delivery services. The new rules will require service providers to submit a comprehensive application, and the Department may deny, refuse to renew, or suspend or revoke a license if the provider violates any provision of this section.

This bill amends the New York City Administrative Code to add penalties for violations related to a license to operate a third-party food delivery service and repeals subchapter 22 of chapter 5 of title 20 of the Administrative Code, which contains existing laws regulating third-party food delivery services.

This bill would change the definition of a public record in order to make it consistent with the requirements of the State Freedom of Information Law and other City and State laws. The bill would also require that City agencies, following a data breach that involves personal identifying information, promptly disclose the information to affected individuals and the City’s Chief Privacy Officer, and provide notice of such breaches to the media.
