The Supreme Court invites written comments on the 2021-2023 reports of six of its Rules committees for this rules cycle. In those reports, the committees (as listed below) make numerous recommendations to the Supreme Court for rule amendments and other non-rule administrative actions.

  1. Committee on Complementary Dispute Resolution
  2. Criminal Practice Committee
  3. Committee on Diversity, Inclusion, and Community Engagement
  4. Committee on the Rules of Evidence
  5. Family Practice Committee
  6. Municipal Court Practice Committee

These reports are also available for review and downloading on the Judiciary’s website at
