23 New Amendments to the Local Rules of Rhode Island’s Federal Court

Attention federal bar practitioners: on November 19, the United States District Court for the District of Rhode Island, through Chief Judge William Smith and Judge Jack McConnell, approved 23 amendments to the Court’s Local Rules. The amended Local Rules will become effective on December 1, 2018 and will govern all proceedings in this Court that are pending, commenced or re-opened on and after that date.  One significant change is the streamlining of admission to the federal bar in the new LR Gen 201.
