Chief Justice Mark Cady signed an order Sept. 4 requesting comments on a proposed recompilation of chapters 34, 35 and 36 in Division III (Professional Regulation) of the Iowa Court Rules.
The proposed recompilation will consolidate rules governing procedure before the Iowa Supreme Court Attorney Disciplinary Board in chapter 35, and the rules governing procedure before the Grievance Commission in chapter 36. Consolidation of general administrative provisions, such as rules creating the board and the commission, and rules of a general nature such as jurisdiction, limitations of actions and actions not based on proceedings before the commission would be consolidated in chapter 34.
"The primary intent of the recompilation is to make the procedure rules easier to use, and includes only a few substantive changes,” the order states.
