Indianapolis IN – The United States District Court of the Southern District of Indiana has published a Notice of Amendment to Local Rules regarding all civil local rules. The Local Rules Advisory Committee has invited public insd_seal2.jpgcomment concerning the proposed amendments through December 15, 2011.

The proposed amendment will replace the numbering system of the rules, but leaves the local rules largely substantively unchanged. The Northern District of Indiana has recently released similar proposed local rule changes, which Indiana Intellectual Property Law and News has blogged.
