Several attorneys have been appointed to revise the Local Rules for the federal courts in West Tennessee. The committee is scheduled to meet in mid-October and the committee members are actively seeking input from the local bar for suggestions and comments regarding revisions to the present Local Rules.   A very significant portion of my firm’s cases are in federal court so we fully intend to take advantage of this opportunity, as should other members of the federal bar.  If anyone has an interest in offering suggestions or input  but doesn’t know who to call, send me an email and I’ll be happy to send you contact information for the committee members.  The deadline for comment is October 16, 2009.
