I know, it's the interwebs -- who comments on anything anymore?
But if you care about proposed revisions to the 11th Circuit's rules, take notice:
Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2071(b), notice and opportunity for comment is hereby given of proposed amendments to the Rules of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit.That's pretty enticing, isn't it?
Here's an example of a proposed revision (probably drafted by Scotty D):
New rule providing that a party who fails to object to a magistrate judge’s findings or recommendations waives the right to challenge on appeal the district court’s order based on unobjected-to factual and legal conclusions if the party was informed of the time period for objecting and the consequences for failing to object, and providing that in the absence of objections, this Court may review for plain error if necessary in the interests of justice.So now suddenly the interests of justice plays a factor in how the Court should rule?
What a concept!
