[SUPREME] Public opinion requested on possible court rule changes
Start Date: 4/5/2013 All Day

Entry Description

The Indiana Supreme Court is interested in obtaining comments from judges, attorneys and the general public as it considers changes to the following Rules of Court:

  • Waiver of Counsel by Juveniles - new rule dealing with procedure before a child can say he does not want an attorney
  • Electronic Transcripts - allow certain electronic transcripts to be filed on appeal
  • Electronically Filed Briefs - two proposals for submitting electronic briefs
  • Acknowledgement of Oral Arguments - deals with the oral argument order handed down by the appellate clerk.   June 2013 correction:  The proposed amendment actually deals with the number of copies that parties must file of the “Acknowledgment of Oral Argument."
  • Temporary Appearances in Criminal Cases - provides procedures for withdrawal of representation
  • Small Claims Venue - brings township small claims court venue rules in line with similar courts
  • Summary Judgment - deals with a trial court judge’s authority to alter certain time limits
  • Special Judge Selection - proposal clarifies the selection of a special judge
  • Rules of Evidence - revisions to increase the degree of conformity of Indiana’s Rules to Federal Rules

The descriptions above are brief outlines of the proposed changes. Details about the proposed rule changes can be found at

The nine-member Committee on Rules of Practice and Procedure is reviewing the possible changes. The Committee was created by the Court to conduct a continuous study of the Indiana Rules of Trial Procedure and other rules as directed by the Court. The Committee must report to the Court recommendations and proposed amendments directed at simplicity in procedure, just determination of litigation, and elimination of unjustified expense and delay.

The Committee is collecting public comments about the possible rule changes until June 5, 2013. Comments can be sent via email or in writing to the following addresses:
