RE: Rule 52, N.D. Sup. Ct. Admin. R., Interactive Television
In addition to his proposals regarding N.D.R.Crim.P. 43, Judge Nelson recommended that N.D. Sup. Ct. Admin. R. 52 be amended to make telephone appearances subject to the same standards as ITV appearances. Staff supplemented Judge Nelson's proposed amendment with additional language allowing appearances by "reliable electronic means," which is the term used in N.D.R.Crim.P. 4.1.
Proposed amendments to Rule 52 are attached.
