The proposed addition of Rule 80.11 to the Vermont Rules of Civil Procedure creates an expedited procedure with an effective, efficient and predictable case management process for lower-value or less complicated cases. It is intended to address a widely recognized problem that the cost and time needed to litigate civil claims are often disproportionate to the value of the case.
THE COMMENT PERIOD HAS BEEN EXTENDED UNTIL SEPTEMBER 26, 2014.
