The Advisory Committee on the Local Rules of Practice also invites your participation in the 2012 Local Rules revision cycle. The Advisory Committee welcomes comments from court users, members of the bar, everyone working in and for the Court, and the public at large. Comments and suggestions for rule revisions and additions should be sent to LocalRule_Comments@cod.uscourts.gov.
Although comments can be sent at any time, those received by June 1, 2012 will be considered in the 2012 rules cycle. The Advisory Committee will review all comments and, where appropriate, propose rule modifications to the Court. Rule changes approved by the Court will be published for review and comment during the Fall of 2012. After consideration of comments, the Court will announce all rule changes. Such changes will likely become effective on December 1, 2012 to correspond with the effective date of any changes in the Federal Rules.
