The Federal Circuit has proposed a couple of rule changes:
- Amicus Brief: Any amicus curiae brief or motion for leave to file the brief will now need to be filed within 14 calendar days from the filing of the petition or response that the amicus curiae supports. (When supporting neither party, the amicus brief or motion must be filed within 14 calendar days of the filing of the petition).
- Rehearing Timing: A petition for rehearing may be filed within 30 days after entry of judgment.
Any comments are due to the court clerk by January 16, 2008.
