Evidence Rules Advisory Committee Approves Proposed New Evidence Rule 502, with Modifications

Posted in FEDERAL RULES AMENDMENTS

From the "What’s New" section of the U.S. Courts Federal Rulemaking website, regarding the actions of the various Advisory Committees this spring: 

"At its April 12-13, 2007, meeting, the Advisory Committee on Evidence Rules considered public comments on proposed new Evidence Rule 502, which was published for comment in August 2006.  The advisory committee approved the proposed new rule, with modifications.  The advisory committee will transmit the proposed new rule to the Committee on Rules of Practice and Procedure with a recommendation that it be approved and transmitted to the Judicial Conference for its consideration."

We will post the modified Evidence Rule 502 here when it becomes available.
