Judicial Conference Approves Federal Rules Amendments
Professor Lonny Hoffman reports:
"The Judicial Conference met on Tuesday and approved the Standing Committee's recommendations on various appellate, bankruptcy, civil, criminal and evidence rule amendments. For those of us with civ pro interests, in particular, the main changes concern electronic discovery. There's also a change to Rule 50 that now expressly permits a motion to be made under the rule before the close of all the evidence without having to renew it at the close of the evidence. The text of all of the rule amendments can be found by going to http://www.uscourts.gov/rules/newrules6.html"
