Court Rules and Procedures Committee
The Court Rules and Procedures Committee studies and develops suggested amendments to designated sets of court rules on a regular cycle of review established by the Washington State Supreme Court. It also responds to requests for comment from the Supreme Court on proposals developed by others. The committee performs the rules-study function outlined in General Rule 9 and reports its recommendations to the WSBA Board of Governors.
