    The Committee on Limited Jurisdiction Courts (LJC) has reviewed and discussed the proposed rule change R-16-0031 and as a result, opposes the petition. The petition proposes the deletion of Rule 20(a). The LJC believes that Rule 20(a) serves an important purpose in that 20(a) allows the court to terminate a case that clearly does not meet the burden of proof required in criminal cases. The current rule also has the benefit of allowing the Court to effectively manage its time and resources.

    The LJC also has concerns about the applicability of the proposed change to bench trials. The proposed Rule appears to focus only on jury trials. Does the proposed rule apply to bench trials?
