Federal Rule amendments

The U.S. Judicial Conference has a reminder posted that a number of amendments to the Federal Rules of Appellate, Bankruptcy, Criminal Procedure, and Evidence took effect December 1, 2011.

Congress took no action after the changes were approved by Supreme Court more than seven months earlier, allowing those amendments to these rules to now go in effect:

• Appellate Rules 4 and 40
• Bankruptcy Rules 2003, 2019, 3001, 4004, and 6003.
• Criminal Rules 1, 3, 4, 6, 9, 32, 40, 41, 43, and 49.
• Evidence Rules 101-1103

Additionally, new Bankruptcy Rules 1004.2 and 3002.1 are in effect, as well as new Criminal Rule 4.1.
