Do You Have Ideas About Changes to the Civil Rules?

The Tennessee Supreme Court has appointed me to the Advisory Commission on the Rules of Practice and Procedure effective January 1, 2008.  I am honored by the appointment; I have always attempted to be a student of the rules of evidence and procedure and look forward to being a part of the process of improving them.

Do you have a proposed rule change that you think will advance the just, speedy and inexpensive resolution of disputes?  Write me an email and give me your thoughts.  Please don’t just pass on an idea – take a stab at drafting the language that you think should be adopted.  Indicate why you think the rule change is appropriate.
