RE: Rule 10, N.D.R.Crim.P., Arraignment; Rule 11, N.D.R.Crim.P., Pleas
Amendments are proposed for Rules 10 and 11 to replace the references in these rules to interactive television hearings with the Supreme Court's new terminology "contemporaneous audio or audiovisual transmission by reliable electronic means."
The committee approved proposed amendments to Rule 11 at the January meeting so the new proposed amendment (which is in the explanatory note) is highlighted.
