After almost four years of wide-ranging debate and extensive public commentary, the process to amend the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure is entering its final laps. On Aug. 14, 2013 the Office of the United States Courts published a set of proposed FRCP amendments for public comment. The public comment period closed on Feb. 18, 2014.

These changes are detailed in the recently published Agenda Book for the Advisory Committee on Civil Rules meeting, which is being held in Portland, Ore., on April 10-11, 2014.
