    Family Court Improvement Committee
    Judge Paul McMurdie, Chair
    [email protected]

    On February 9, 2022, the Family Court Improvement Committee discussed the similarities between this Petition and R-21-0040, a Petition filed by this committee. Understanding the difficulty inherent in creating a rule suitable for all case types, the committee moved to support this Petition regarding electronic signatures with a recommendation that the amendments enumerated in R-21-0040 for family law cases also be adopted. The motion passed unanimously.
