Proposed Rules ArchivesCR 10 - Form of Pleadings and other Papers
Suggested Amendment to Civil Rule (CR) 10
concerning Form of Pleadings and Other Papers
Submitted by the Board of Governors of the Washington State Bar Association
Purpose: The suggested addition of new paragraph (f) is intended to alert litigants to the prohibition on the inclusion in court documents of specified personal identifiers. The prohibition, enacted in 2004, is contained in GR 31(e). Under GR 31(e)(2), the responsibility for redacting personal identifiers rests with counsel and the parties, and the rule subjects a party to the possibility of paying expenses if a motion for a redaction order is needed. A cross-reference to GR 31(e) will assist litigants in complying with this requirement.
The suggested addition of new paragraph (g) is a component of a new suggested protocol for citation of unpublished opinions. Please see the statement of purpose for suggested New GR 14.1 in this regard. Paragraph (g) will serve to alert litigants about the rules pertaining to citation of unpublished opinions and assist them in complying with that rule. The recommendation to adopt this portion of the suggested amendment is contingent on the adoption of suggested New GR 14.1.
