Effective Jan. 3, 2012, the District Court Department revised and promulgated Standards of Judicial Practice: Civil Commitment and Authorization of Medical Treatment for Mental Illness.  The Standards cover the issues of civil commitment and authorization of medical treatment in great detail. While the Standards of Judicial Practice are not mandatory in application, they represent a qualitative judgment as to best practices in each of the various aspects of the civil commitment procedure.
