6th. Circuit Court of Appeals Proposed Rules

The 6th. Circuit Court of Appeals voted to amend Local Rules 28(g) and 45(a)(7) and is entertaining comments on the proposed changes until December 20, 2006.

Rule 28(g) is reference to the citation of unreported opinions, which are currently “disfavored” by the 6th Circuit “except for the purpose of establishing res judicata, estoppel, or the law of a case.” Allowing the citation of unreported cases follows new Rule of Appellate Procedure 32.1 which will become effective Dec. 1, 2006 .
