Civil Practice and Procedure Committee
ATTENTION CIVIL PRACTITIONERS: THERE ARE SIGNIFICANT AMENDMENTS TO THE CIVIL RULES CONCERNING CASE MANAGEMENT AND TRIAL SETTINGS LIKELY TO IMPACT THE MAJORITY OF YOUR CASES.
The Supreme Court has adopted significant amendments to the Arizona Rules of Civil Procedure that will dramatically alter civil case management and trial setting procedures in the Superior Court. These amendments are effective April 15, 2014, but likely will affect the majority of pending cases (under specific circumstances as outlined in the order), as well as all cases filed on or after that date. Every attorney with a civil case in the Superior Court should review the amendments [click here] and the Amended Order Regarding Applicability [click here] to determine what action is required.
Study and make recommendations on proposals and/or issues involving the various rules impacting civil practice as submitted by the Bar or third parties. Prepare petitions seeking amendments and comments to third party petitions as deemed necessary.
