    Would abrogate new Rule 38(d) because it's statutorily void and violates Due Process rights of defendants

    Filed: January 10, 2024

    Would abrogate Rule 38(d) of the Arizona Rules of Protective Order Procedure, which sets forth procedures for amending a petition if the plaintiff wishes to testify or present evidence about allegations that were not included in the petition.

    Comments must be submitted by no later than Wednesday, May 1, 2024, and any reply by a petitioner must be submitted no later than Monday, June 3, 2024.
