New Court Rules

The Washington Supreme Court adopted a lot of new and amended rules on July 10. Changes will become effective Sept. 1 (unless otherwise noted).

Of particular interest to trial lawyers:

  • CR 43, Taking of Testimony.
  • CRLJ 43, Taking of Testimony.
  • All of the Rules of Evidence (ER). (The big change is deleting the official comments.)
  • Most of the Rules of Appellate Procedure (RAP). (I don't know what the major changes are.)
  • All of the Rules of Professional Conduct (RPC) (a complete review).
