We previously reported on the proposed revisions to the Sixth Circuit Rules, including those changes most likely to immediately impact practitioners (here and here).  The Court has now formally issued its new rules, effective August 16, 2012.  The Court has also issued new Internal Operating Procedures and the now-indispensable Guide to Electronic Filing.  The Internal Operating Procedures provide important insight into the Court’s practices and procedures, and are well worth reading in full.  All three are available as a single PDF on the Court’s website.
