Supreme Court Approves Colorado Rules of Civil Procedure Amendments

Two changes to the Colorado Rules of Civil Procedure (C.R.C.P) were approved recently by the Colorado Supreme Court.

The first change, Rule Change 2010(7) (pdf), amends C.R.C.P. 10(i), “Form and Quality of Pleadings, Motions and Other Documents,” to update the formatting specifications for certain State Judicial forms. This amendment was approved by the court, en banc, on April 5, 2010, and went into effect immediately.

The second change, Rule Change 2010(10) (pdf), amends C.R.C.P. 47(a)(5) and (u), “Jurors,” adding language that limits the circumstances under which an impaneled jury may discuss a case, the evidence presented at trial, and the case’s potential outcome. The language also grants the trial court the discretion to limit “pre-deliberation discussions of the evidence” based on a showing of “good cause.” This amendment was approved by the court, en banc, on June 7, 2010, and went into effect immediately.
