Proposed Amendments to Federal Rules of Civil Procedure to be Published for Public Comment
At its June meeting, the Committee on Rules of Practice and Procedure (“The Standing Committee”) unanimously approved for publication and public comment proposed amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. The proposed amendments would affect rules 1, 4, 16, 26, 30, 31, 33, 34, 36, and 37. A proposed change to Rule 84 (namely, its abrogation) may also be published for public comment. Many of the amendments are quite far reaching and would have a substantial impact, particularly on discovery.
