RE: Rule 508, N.D.R.Ev., Secrets of State and Other Official Information; Governmental Privileges
Proposed amendments to Rule 508 based on the 1999 amendments to the Uniform Rules of Evidence are attached. The amendments add titles to the subdivisions.
The explanatory note to this rule is quite expansive, perhaps reflecting the fact that Watergate was a current event when the rule was drafted and approved.
