Re:          Report of the Civil Rules Advisory Committee
Introduction
The Civil Rules Advisory Committee met in Washington, D.C., on May 22-23, 2006. Draft
minutes of the meeting are attached.
Part I of this report presents action items. Subpart A recommends approval for adoption of
two sets of proposals. The first is Civil Rule 5.2, the Civil Rules version of the E-Government Rules
developed under direction by the Standing Committee Subcommittee on the E-Government Act.
The second is the package of Style amendments - Style Rules 1-86; Style-Substance amendments
to Rules 4(k), 9(h), 1 I(a),14(b),16(c)(1), 26(g)(1), 30(b), 31, 40, 71.1, and 78; Style Forms; and the
Style versions of the amended rules on electronic discovery now pending in Congress and scheduled
to take effect on December 1, 2006 (Rules 16, 26, 33, 34, 37, and 45).
Subpart I B recommends approval forpublication of new Rule 62.1 on indicative rulings and
amendments to Rules 13(f), 15(a)(amended pleadings), and 48 (jury polling). The recommendation
is to publish these proposals - along with the modest amendment of Rule 8(c) approved for
publication at the January meeting - at a later date, presumably August, 2007, when they can be
included in a package with other proposals.
Part II of this report presents information items describing the projects that are being
developed for further consideration.
