The standard Dirac bracket construction is generalized to the case of infinitely reducible second class constraints. Reducibility of constraints is shown to manifest itself in weakening the Jacobi identity for the construction, that now holds on the second class constraint surface only. The proposed scheme is realized for N = 1 superparticle model in ten dimensions.
