We hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season.

During the month, a few important developments have occurred.

New Jersey has also announced proposed amendments to the regulations for Court Reporting in the State of New Jersey. A copy of the proposed changes and information for how to contact the Board can be found here.

New York has included additional rule proposal changes, some of which concern the usage of remote deposition proceedings. A list of the changes with requests for public comment can be found here.

In New York, it was announced that the active grand juries will remain empaneled.
