The United States District Court has posted Revised Local Rules for comment.
Comments will be accepted through September 30, 2010.

While many of the proposed revisions simply acknowledge the advent of electronic filing and communications, members of the bar may wish to note a few of the more substantive changes.

Rule 56.1 Changing the response time for suggestions in opposition to summary judgment to 21 days from 30 days in accord with recent changes to Fed. R. Civ. P. 56.
Rule 79.2 Codifying current practice of attorney retention as to custody of exhibits after trial.
Rule 83.8 Simplifying the procedure for an appearance before the court by a law student, intern/summer associate.
