RE: Rule 19, N.D.R.Juv.P., Juvenile Records
The committee discussed Rule 19 at the September meeting. It noted that a portion of the text of the rule duplicated N.D.C.C. § 27-20-51, the statute on inspection of juvenile court records. The committee instructed staff to eliminate the duplicated material from the rule and redraft.
A copy of the redrafted rule proposal is attached. The duplicated material has been removed and replaced with cross-references to the pertinent parts of N.D.C.C. § 27-20-51. Language not found in the statute has been retained in the rule.
