To the Bench, Bar, and Public:
The Indiana Supreme Court seeks public comment on the following proposed amendments to the Indiana Rules of Court.
Judicial Conduct Rules
The proposed amendment to Code of Judicial Conduct Rule 2.17 would give trial court judges discretion to allow news media to broadcast, televise, record, and photograph court proceedings.
Tax Court Rules
The proposed amendments to Tax Court Rules 5 and 16 clarify and ensure that local assessing officials who are named as respondents in original tax appeals retain their own counsel.

The Court invited public comment on the proposed amendments until August 1, 2022 at 1:00 p.m. (Eastern), and the comment period is now closed.
