Summary as passed: (all summaries)
Local court rules. Limits the rules that circuit and district courts may prescribe to only those absolutely necessary to promote proper order and decorum and the efficient use of the courthouse facilities and clerks’ offices and invalidates any rule which is not so necessary. The bill states that it is the clear intent of the General Assembly that there be no local rules and that any docket control procedures not affect the substantive rights of the litigants. The Courts of Justice Committees and the Supreme Court are asked to review and recommend to the 2000 General Assembly which matters are docket control procedures and which are local rules.
