Amendment of bill of particulars on the eve of trial is allowedJuly 19, 2010

Finocchiaro v Wall St. Mail Pk-Up Serv., Inc., 2010 NY Slip Op 51255(U)(App. Term 2d Dept. 2010)

I am including this case today, because the Appellate Term (see the bold below) has shared with us something that might have come from a spy novel: “While leave to amend a bill of particulars is ordinarily freely granted in the absence of prejudice and surprise, when leave to amend is sought on the eve of trial, judicial discretion should be exercised in a discreet, circumspect, prudent and cautious manner (see Kyong Hi Wohn v County of Suffolk, 237 AD2d 412 [1997]).”
