RE: Rule 22, N.D.R.Crim.P., Time of Motion to Transfer
Attached are proposed amendments to Rule 22. The amendments are form and style amendments in the spirit of the December 2002 federal criminal rule amendments.
The contents of Fed.R.Crim.P.22 were transferred to Fed.R.Crim.P.21. This does not seem appropriate for the North Dakota rule because it has broader applicability than the federal rule. Therefore, the proposal retains Rule 22 as a separate rule.
The proposed changes are intended to be stylistic only.
