Amendments to Fed. Rules of Appellate Procedure

Speaking of rule changes, a few amendments to the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure went into effect last December 1. Nothing major. FRAP 25(a)(5), on privacy protection, was tweaked to add a provision for appeals in benefits cases from the Railroad Retirement Board. And FRAP 42, on voluntary dismissal, was amended to make it easier to dismiss an appeal on agreement of the parties. To see the amendments in redline, follow this link.
