FTC Issues Final Rules Amending Parts 3 and 4 of the Agency’s Rules of Practice

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

In an important practice development, the FTC Issued Final Rules Amending Parts 3 and 4 of the Agency’s Rules of Practice.  The press release notes:

The Federal Trade Commission today adopted as final the interim rules amending Parts 3 and 4 of the agency’s Rules of Practice that were announced last December, and also further amended several rules and eliminated one. The amendments are designed to streamline and improve the agency’s “Part 3” adjudicative proceedings. They expedite the prehearing, hearing, and appeal phases; streamline discovery and motion practice; and ensure that the FTC can apply its substantive expertise, as appropriate, earlier in the process.
