Important recent amendments to Superior Court Rules and Standing Orders provide new options for civil practitioners and fundamentally change many procedural requirements in the Superior Court. Our panel of six Superior Court Judges will discuss the following new rules and initiatives:
• Superior Court Rule 20 – Tailor your case management through individual case management and tracking. Learn how you can streamline litigation through jury-waived trials, judicial settlement conferences and a wide variety of litigation options.
• Superior Court Standing Order 1-88F – Attorneys with cases involving real estate, construction, products liability and employment discrimination are required to participate in the pilot program for case management conferences. Ensure that you are prepared.
• Amendments to Superior Court Rules 9A - Amendments to Rule 9A, effective November 1, 2018, dramatically alter Rule 9A. Understand how the many amendments to Rule 9A affect civil motion practice in order to ensure your compliance.
• Superior Court Rule 9C – Understand how the newly amended rule extends Rule 9C’s “confer and report” requirements to dispositive motions.
• Superior Court Rule 9D – Hear about the new provisions relating to motions to reconsider.
• Superior Court Rule 73 – Learn how the new rule overhauls procedures for medical malpractice actions.
This program is a must for civil practitioners who appear in the Superior Court. Learn the fine print on recent amendments to the rules and benefit from best practice tips from our distinguished panel of Superior Court Judges from across the state.
