David Herr, an appellate attorney in Maslon's Litigation Group, will serve as course chair for two Minnesota CLE webcasts on the new amendments to the Rules of Civil Procedure on June 21 and July 26. Each program, titled "New Minnesota Civil Practice Rules – Practical Insight on the Extensive Amendments, Effective July 1," will provide an overview of all the changes before turning to a panel discussion focused on the implications—and practice dos and don'ts—related to the rules that will result in substantive changes to state court practice. David serves as Reporter for the Minnesota Supreme Court's Advisory Committee on Rules of Civil Procedure. The June program will feature Judge Eric Hylden, Chair of the committee, and the July program will feature Supreme Court Justice G. Barry Anderson, Liaison Justice to the committee.
