December 1, 2016 changes to the Federal Rules of Civil and Criminal Procedure

by John Roberts on November 28, 2016

On December 1, 2016, important changes to the Federal Rules of Civil and Criminal Procedure will take effect. The changes include, among others, amendments to the “3-day service” rules. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 6(d); Fed. R. Cr. P. 45(c). All counsel and interested parties should review and analyze these amendments to assess how pending and future cases may be affected.

See:

www.supremecourt.gov/orders/courtorders/frcv16_757a.pdf (Civil Rules); and

www.supremecourt.gov/orders/courtorders/frcr16_mj80.pdf (Criminal Rules).

If you have questions you can call the Southern District of Indiana District Court Clerk’s Office at 317-229-3700. Though the Clerk’s Office cannot provide legal advice, they are usually quite helpful with procedural matters.
