Joint Comment on the Proposed Federal Rule Amendments

Joint Comment on the Proposed Federal Rule Amendments

IAALS and ACTL

IAALS and the American College of Trial Lawyers Task Force on Discovery and Civil Justice submitted comments on the proposed Federal Rule Amendments.

The comment provides a summary of the pilot project and rules reform activity around the country, at both the state and federal level, as much of this activity parallels the current proposed amendments.

In addition, several of the Proposed Principles in the IAALS and ACTL Task Force’s Final Report are directly relevant to the proposed amendments, and it is with the perspective of these recommendations that IAALS and the Task Force commented on the proposed rules.
