U.S. DISTRICT COURT LOCAL RULES REVISIONS
EFFECTIVE DECEMBER 1, 2015
The United States District Court for the District of Colorado reviewed and approved revisions to its Local Rules which become effective December 1, 2015. The Advisory Committee on the Local Rules of Practice and Procedure in the 2015 rules cycle considered 16 proposals or suggestions from the bar and the public submitted in 2015, and addressed 9 matters continued from previous years. The Advisory Committee's work in the 2015 focused on conversion of the magistrate judge direct assignment pilot programs into corresponding local rules; and refinements to the criminal rules (sentencing and restricted documents), the AP rules (forms of pleadings and case management), and the court's attorney rules (discipline matters).
The Advisory Committee on the Local Rules always welcomes comments from court users, members of the bar, and the public at large. Please send your comments or suggestions to:
