RE: Rule 19, N.D.R.Crim.P., Transfer Within District
Attached are proposed amendments to Rule 19. The amendments are form and style amendments in the spirit of the December 2002 federal criminal rule amendments.
Rule 19 is not based on a federal rule. Therefore, revisions to this rule are based on the federal court rule drafting guidelines and the North Dakota legislative drafting guidelines.
The proposed changes are intended to be stylistic only.
