Summary as passed: (all summaries)
Rules of Court. Provides that the Supreme Court will no longer have to distribute the Rules of Court to certain parties listed in the Code. Amendments to the Rules of Court are placed on the Supreme Court's Internet site as soon as they are adopted and this is the primary source for the bench, bar and public to become aware of new Rules. The Rules are also published in Virginia Lawyer's Weekly and included in the Code of Virginia when it is updated. The bill also deletes the requirement that circuit court clerks keep a special book of Rules and amendments to the Rules. The bill will save approximately $7,500 in printing costs and was recommended by the Judicial Council for this reason.
