Amendments to Federal Rules

Wednesday, October 5, 2016

Effective December 1, 2016

Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 6(d) and Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure 45(c) will be amended to eliminate the three extra days added to respond when a party is served by electronic means. Three days will continue to be added after the period would otherwise expire under FRCvP 6, only if service is made by mail, leaving with the clerk, or other means consented to.
