Local Rules in PDF format

 

The Local Rules were last amended on December 1, 2018. At that time, several amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil and Criminal Procedure took effect. The Court therefore adopted several conforming amendments to its local rules, a few other amendments to bring the local rules into conformity with actual Clerk's Office's practices, and a few timing changes to promote consistency. The rules amended were Local Civil Rules 3, 51, 54, and 62, and Local Criminal Rules 12.4, 30, and 49.
