Re:       Report of the Civil Rules Advisory Committee
Introduction
The Civil Rules Advisory Committee met on April 10 and i,
2000, at the Administrative Office of the United States Courts in
Washington, D.C.    It voted to recommend adoption of rules

some modifications in response to the public comments. Part I of
this report details these recommendations with respect to two
packages. The first package, covering electronic service of papers
after initial process, includes changes in Rules 5(b), 6(e), and
77(d). The second package, covering abrogation of the obsolete
Copyright Rules of Practice, includes abrogation of those rules, a
new Rule 65(f), and a corresponding change in Rule 81 (a) (1) . A
third proposal for adoption included in this package would make an
overdue technical correction to Rule 82; it is recommended that it
be adopted without publication for comment.
Part II describes the Advisory Committee recommendation to
publish for comment three sets of amendments. The first proposes
a new Rule 7.1 governing disclosure of information that supports a

advisory committees. The second set proposes amendments to Civil
Rules 54 (d) (2) and 58. This proposal is advanced for consideration

proposal would amend Rule 81(a) (2) to integrate better with the
rules governing habeas corpus cases and § 2255 motions.
Part III summarizes ongoing Advisory Committee work, primarily
