MSSC Looks at the MRCP
October 5, 2015 § Leave a comment
The MSSC’s internal committee on rules of civil procedure has sent out a letter soliciting comments and suggestions for changes to the MRCP. Deadline for comments is in December.
The letter, which was addressed to various constituent groups, appellate judges,the chairs of the trial court conferences, and others, said that the committee, consisting of Justices Dickinson, Randolph, and Coleman, intends to do a thorough study of the rules, review suggested changes, and re-draft the rules as the committee deems appropriate. Changes would then be sent to the court’s rules advisory committee for study and further work.
An upcoming article in the Mississippi Lawyer will provide further details.
