New Amendments to Federal Rules


Several amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Practice and Procedure became effective on Monday. The Federal Rules govern the process of litigation in the federal courts. Amendments are proposed by the Judicial Conference of the United States and promulgated by the Supreme Court as authorized by 28 U.S.C. § 331. The latest amendments affect the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure, Bankruptcy Procedure, Criminal Procedure, Civil Procedure, and Evidence. The amendments, as well as the complete text of the rules, can be found at the United States Courts website.
