Some revisions to the Federal Court Rules entry:
- I cut the section on “Procedural Rules” and moved the information to the “Circuit and District Courts” section, where I think people are more likely to find it;
- I cut the section on the “Precedential Value” of unpublished opinions and moved the information to the Unreported Decisions entry, where it fits better;
- I added cross references to the entries for the Federal civil, criminal and appellate rules of procedure, as well as the Unreported Decisions entry and the Federal Rules of Evidence entry;
- I added links to the special Rules for Section 2254 & 2255 Cases, the Rules of the U.S. Court of International Trade and the Rules of Practice Before the U.S. Court of Veterans Appeals.
I also checked to see if the Directory of Federal Court Guidelines is still being published, and I’m please to say it is.
