In June 2023, the District Court for the Western District of Michigan proposed amendments to the Local Civil Rules and the Local Criminal Rules that affect attempts to obtain motion concurrence. The proposed amendments to Local Criminal Rule 12.4 and Local Civil Rule 7.1(d) add requirements to the efforts to obtain concurrence and add requirements to the certificate to be filed if concurrence is not obtained. For those who practice regularly in the Court, please consider taking a look and providing any input by July 31, 2023. The proposed amendments are here and the process for comment can be found here.
