Code and Rules of Evidence Committee revision to proposed three-year cycle amendments

The Code and Rules of Evidence Committee published notice of its three-year cycle proposals in the July 1, 2012, Florida Bar News. Following review of comments received and the recommendations of The Florida Bar Board of Governors, the Committee voted 26-0 to withdraw its previous recommendation that sections 458.3175, 459.0066, and 466.005, Florida Statutes, be adopted by the Supreme Court as rules of evidence to the extent that they are procedural. The Committee voted 14-13 to retain its recommendations that section 766.102, Florida Statutes, be adopted by the Supreme Court as a rule of evidence to the extent that it is procedural. The Committee’s other recommendations, that sections 90.5021 and 90.804(2)(f), Florida Statutes, be adopted by the Supreme Court as rules of evidence to the extent that they are procedural, remain unchanged. Further information on this change is available at
www.floridabar.org/cmdocs/cm215.nsf/WDOCS/94408E28CA9AC22A85257A8D005D2606. An original and nine copies of any comments on these proposals should filed with the clerk of the Supreme Court at e-file@flcourts.org, and served on the chair of the committee, Thomas Shults, at tshults@kirkpinkerton.com and the committee’s staff liaison, Ellen Sloyer, at esloyer@flabar.org.
