RE:    Committee Meeting
Room 638, Administrative Office, 811 Vermont Ave. NW, Washington
May 2124, 1991
I look forward to our meeting in Washington on May 2-24 and hope each of you will be able to attend.
As in the past, the meetings will start at 8.30 in the morning, and the meeting on the 24th will end in time for
people tv catch afternoon flights. Meetings will be in Room 638 of the Administrative Office, 811 Vermont
Avenue N.W., which is a block-and-a-half from the Hay Adams, where I assume most out-of-towners will be
staying.
At the end of this letter is a tentative agenda, which, of course, is subject to change by the Committee.
Please remember to bring with you the May 1991 draft of proposed changes. together with the April draft
regardin poibl  ango t Rule 11.
Since distribution of the May 1991 draft, Paul and I have received several informal com.ents and
suggestions. Of particular interest have been those received from Professor Ed Cooper and from the group of
attorneys serving on the Federal Rules Committee of the American College of Trial Lawyers.
One clerical error was detected in the May 1991 draft. In Rule 34, page 34-1, line 8, the word
interrogatories should be replaced by the words a request. Please make this change to your copy of the May
1991 draft,
Some of the comments involve minor changes, e.g., simply changing the number of days of some event
or condition, or simply opposition to some change. Of the latter type would be the opposition expressed by the
ACTIL group to Rules 16(c)(2) and 43. These can be conveniently addressed at the meeting without preparing
any redraft.
However, several of the comments that have potential merit involve more substantial changes in the
language of the rules or notes that can best be discussed by showing old language (i.e., May 1991 draft) and
possible new language. In the attached draft, I have attempted to come up with language that reflects these
comments and suggestions.
Finally, there are several comments that I have not attempted to put in the form of suggested language
changes but that you should be aware of. These are summarizedI below:
