Proposed Change to Fifth Circuit Rule Concerning Fee for Admission to Practice

The clerk's office has posted this notice of a proposed amendment to Fifth Circuit Rule 46.1, concerning admission and fees. The redline isn't accurate, so the proposed change is a little confusing. It looks like it adds an additional category of attorneys who are exempt from paying an admission fee to practice in the Fifth Circuit: those who are "newly graduated from law school, licensed to practice in Louisiana, Mississippi, or Texas, and on orders for extended active duty in the Judge Advocate General's Corps of the military services[.]"

Discussion questions:
  • Is that the correct way to form the possessive of Judge Advocate General Corps?
  • Shouldn't Texas be listed first?
