Civil Procedure Changes 

Civil Procedure will never be the same.

First, the rewritten Federal Rules of Civil Procedure went into effect on December 1, 2007. Characterized as comprehensive "style-only" revisions, the changes make style and terminology consistent throughtout the Rules.

Second, amendments to the Massachusetts Rules of Civil Procedure become effective on March 1, 2008. Much less comprehensive than the changes to the Federal Rules, these amendments primarily apply to District Court practice.
