A Few New Rules

I received an email indicating Chief Justice Lavorato signed orders and legislative reports amending court rules.

A couple of items of interest:

1) A whole slew of new regulations take effect October 1st, governing court interpreters. No longer having the litigant's thirteen-year-old kid interpreting the details of his grandparent's will. No more pulling in the felony defendant from the hearing next door. Although there are provisions for an emergency in which the litigants waive these requirements . . . .

2) Effective immediately, there will be no more bar exams given in Iowa City. Polk County only, for whatever reason.
