TO THE CHAIRMAN AND MEMBERS OF THE COMMITTEE ON RULES OF
PRACTICE AND PROCEDURE
As you know, the Advisory Committee on Admiralty Rules has
resolved that unification of the civil and admiralty practices, with certain
special rules for distinctively maritime matters, is both feasible and de-
sirable. The plan to implement this resolution has been approved in prin-
ciple by you and by the judicial Conference, and the Supreme Court has
informally indicated its approval of the principle. The plan has similarly
been approved by the responsible committee of the Maritime Law Associa-
tion of the United States, with whom the Advisory Committee has worked
closely. Finally, the plan has been reviewed by the Advisory Committee
on Civil Rules with generally favorable results, although a few points of
difference have been defined.
The Advisory Committee on Admiralty Rules will meet again in
September. At that time, it is hoped, we can take definitive action re-
commending to you a set of amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Pro-
cedure necessary to effectuate the plan of unification, together with a
set of Supplemental Rules governing the distinctively maritime remedies
(attachment and garnishment, proceedings in rem, and proceedings for
limitation of liability). It is reasonable to hope that at its meeting in
October the Advisory Committee on Civil Rules will take definitive action
on the proposal. You would then be in position to submit the proposal to
the bench and bar generally for criticism.
The proposal will be based on the Civil Rules as of July 1, 1963,
including the amendments that became effective on that date.
