About the Committee

The Supreme Court adopts the rules of practice and procedure for all state courts. The Supreme Court appoints advisory committees to assist in keeping the rules up-to-date. The tasks of the Advisory Committee on Rules of Electronic Filing and Video or Audio Proceedings include:

  • Reviewing the operation and effectiveness of the electronic filing and video or audio proceedings rules
  • Receiving proposals to change rules or adopt new rules
  • Proposing changes to rules or adoption of new rules
  • Sending proposed rules to the bar and public for comment and, when required, holding public hearings on proposed rules or rule changes
  • Receiving comments

Once a proposal has been sent out for comment, the committee may make further changes or recommend that the Supreme Court adopt the change. The Supreme Court is responsible for putting any amendment into effect.
