Proposed Changes to Local Rules

The Northern District of Mississippi is looking to make several changes to the Local Rules.  Click here for the proposed changes. Comments are due by July 1. Some highlights:
  • motions (not memorandum briefs) limited to 4 pages, no citations/arguments;
  • pre-removal discovery deemed served as of date of case mgmt. conference (except, for some reason, for Rule 34 requests);
  • parties no longer allowed to have smartphones in court.
