On January 1, 2021, amendments to the court rules go into effect.  These amendments will expand administrative rejection and striking if filers do not separate public and non-public information in their filings. It is essential that attorneys and legal professionals know these amendments to avoid having their filings rejected or stricken from the court record.

Join the Legal Counsel Division for a primer on the updated rules and an overview of possible consequences for non-compliance.

1.5 standard CLE credits applied for.
