    Rule 96 is especially necessary to protect the integrity of the judicial System. The role of a Judge in a Court is to be a "finder of fact". To the knowledge of petitioner, the crimes of perjury and presenting false documents to the court (ARS 13-2407) are NOT enforced in Family Court. If the Judge cannot rely on the integrity of sworn testimony or documents, how can the judge perform his function as "finder of fact"? If the court cannot function as a "Court - finder of fact" it has necessarily degenerated by definition into a bureaucracy.
    This matter is recognized by the legislature as fundamental, thus related legislation is now being processed to address this important matter. It is conceivable, perhaps likely that this rule will be required by law by July 2016. Thus it is fortunate that we have this Rules Committee (whoever they are, whenever they meet) so that the will of the people by means of their legislative representatives might be protected and served by a Court based upon truth, rather than a self-serving bureaucracy.
    With or without commanding statute, order and integrity is essential to administration of Justice and must become a staple of Family Court.

    This is an essential Rule. Our Family Court Judge Ruled that Petitioner has the power to report the Parenting Coordinator to the Attorney General herself for the crimes. When I attemped to report her, the AG informed me that they do not take reports from Pro per people, only law enforcement entity. She encouraged me to continue, as Parenting Coordinators are unregulated, and she indicated I was "on the right track" ...

    Observation: No opinions objecting to this measure have yet been registered by anyone.

    Request for Public Hearing per SC Rule 28(E) – Request is hereby made.

    Request for Expedited Adoption of Rule change per SC Rule 28(G)(2) – Request is hereby made. Rule 96 would provide some reasonable measure of protection from being the victim of crime that every citizen is entitled to everywhere else (even criminals in prison) except as a litigant in Family Court. The current lack of protection constitutes ongoing and widespread violations of various provisions of the US Constitution and are as such violations of Federal Civil Rights. For these reasons Civil Rights actions are given priority in Federal Court and should be shown the same priority in this petition.
