    Would allow tribal governments from other states seeking to exercise their rights under ICWA in Arizona child custody proceedings to avoid some pro hac vice appearance requirements; to obtain special admission of out-of-state attorneys representing tribes in ICWA cases; and to use a non-lawyer representative designated by a tribe in ICWA proceedings.

    3/2/2017 Request to Consider Untimely Petition DENIED. Petition will be considered in due course during Court's 2018 rules cycle.

    Comments must be submitted on or before May 21, 2018.

    IT IS ORDERED canceling the comment period as moot. In addition to emailing this order to recipients of Rule 28 notices, Court staff is to post the text of the order on the Court Rules Forum.
