Colorado Rules of Civil and County Court Civil Procedure Amended by Supreme Court

On Friday, June 14, 2013, the Colorado Supreme Court issued Rule Change 2013(07), approved and effective June 7, 2013. The rule change enumerates changes to Rules 103 and 121 of the Colorado Rules of Civil Procedure, and Rules 403 and 411 of the Colorado Rules of County Court Civil Procedure.

The changes to C.R.C.P. 103 and County Court Rule 403 concern court orders on writs of garnishment. Language was added to both rules to clarify that judgment debtors may pay their indebtedness to pro se judgment creditors into the registry of the court, while they should forward their payment to the attorneys or collection agencies representing judgment creditors if the judgment creditors are represented.

C.R.C.P. 121, § 1-15, “Determination of Motions,” was amended to add language to subsection 10 excepting orders requiring the signatures of parties as required by rule or statute to the rule about proposed orders.

County Court Rule 411, “Appeals,” was amended to revise the language about lodging the record with the clerk so that it now must be filed 42 days after the filing of the notice of appeal. Previously, the language said that it must be filed 42 days after the judgment.
