RE: Rule 62, N.D.R.Civ.P., Stay of Proceedings to Enforce a Judgment
Staff has prepared amendments to Rule 62 based on the federal form and style
amendments. The amendments are intended make the rule more easily understood and to
make style and terminology consistent throughout the rules. The amendments also aim to
modernize the rule, removing references to obsolete authority and practices.
Subdivisions (f), (g), (h), (i), (j), (k), and (n) are not contained in the federal rule.
Therefore, the amendments are based on general form and style principles to make the
subdivisions more easily understood.
The proposed amendments to Rule 62 are attached along with a copy of the
amendments to the federal rule.
