2015 Updates to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure
On April 25, 2014, the Chief Justice of the United States submitted the 2015 changes to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. The amendment, effective on December 1, 2014, only effects one of the rules, FRCP 77(c)(1). The amended section is as follows:
Rule 77. Conducting Business; Clerk’s Authority; Notice of an Order or Judgment
* * * * *
(c) Clerk’s Office Hours; Clerk’s Orders.
(1) Hours. The clerk’s office — with a clerk or deputy on duty — must be open during business hours every day except Saturdays, Sundays, and legal holidays. But a court may, by local rule or order, require that the office be open for specified hours on Saturday or a particular legal holiday other than one listed in Rule 6(a)(6)(A).
FRCP 77 has been updated on this site with this change as of December 1, 2014.
