    Would raise the Standard of Proof in a civil IAH Contested Hearing from "a preponderance of the evidence" to "clear and convincing" evidence.
    Also and informal request to adopt a Rule to set the same standard - or "probable cause" for the ex parte hearing.

    Two Exhibits attached separately.

    Filed: January 10, 2019

    Would amend Rule 38(g), Arizona Rules of Protective Order Procedure, to raise the standard of proof for a protective order to remain in effect from "a preponderance of the evidence" to "clear and convincing evidence."
