FOREWORD

This document contains the Rules of Civil Procedure for the United States District Courts, as promulgated and amended by the United States Supreme Court pursuant to acts of Congress (28 U. S. Code, sec. 2072). It has been prepared by the staff of the law revision counsel of Subcommittee No. 3, of which Representative Edwin E. Willis is chairman, in response to the many requests for an official up-to-date document containing all the rules, as amended.

For the convenience of the user, where a rule has been amended a reference to the citation and effective date of the amendment follows the text of the rule, as amended.

The United States Supreme Court Advisory Committee on Rules of Civil Procedure prepared extensive notes covering various aspects and provisions of the rules. These notes may be found in Title 28, United States Code, following the particular rule to which they relate.

Emanuel Setto

Chairman, Committee on the Judiciary.

May 1, 1956.
