SCOTUS Approves Amendments to Federal Rules of Civil Procedure
This week the Supreme Court approved amendments to Federal Rules of Civil Procedure 8, 26, and 56, and Illustrative Form 52 and transmitted them to Congress. The amendments were approved by the Judicial Conference of the United States last fall (as covered earlier here).
Absent congressional intervention, the amendments will become effective on Dec. 1, 2010.
