RE: Rule 56, N.D.R.Crim.P., When Court is Open
Attached are proposed amendments to Rule 56. The amendments are form and style amendments in the spirit of the December 2002 federal criminal rule amendments and are based on the amendments to Fed.R.Crim.P. 56(a).
The Committee may wish to consider whether to add Fed.R.Crim.P. 56(b) and (c) to the North Dakota rule. Staff did not add these subdivisions because it is possible they might not be applicable to non-court funded clerks of court. This is an issue the Committee may wish to discuss.
