PURPOSE OF PROPOSED AMENDMENTS

The United States District Court, District of Alaska, is undertaking a major revision of the Court’s Local Civil Rules.  A Civil Rules Committee made up of local practitioners and court staff, chaired by Judge Sharon Gleason, has been working to bring the local rules up to date and to make them easier to use and understand, while adhering to the requirements of Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 83(a).  To that end, the Rules Committee has developed this draft of proposed amendments. 

The Committee has edited and moved a number of provisions, and welcomes any and all comments on how the proposed changes or additions will affect practitioners and self-represented litigants.

All comments received become part of the permanent court file on the rules.
