Proposed Amendments to Fifth Circuit Rules 27.3 & 27.4, Concerning Emergency Motions

The court has issued a notice of proposed amendments to Fifth Circuit Rules 27.3 and 27.4. The notice explains that, "[t]o address the problem of last minute motions and the ability of the court to respond timely, Rules 27.3 and 27.4 are redrafted to give adequate time for the court to consider and decide motions a party characterizes as 'emergencies.'" The text of the proposed amendments is available here. Anyone wishing to comment on the proposal, either in writing or electronically, must do so by December 1, 2007.
