Minnesota Supreme Court Appoints David Herr as Reporter for Advisory Committee on the Rules of Civil Appellate Procedure
June 21, 2013
David Herr, partner in Maslon's Litigation Group, has been appointed by the Minnesota Supreme Court to serve as Reporter for the Advisory Committee on the Rules of Civil Appellate Procedure. The Committee, which advises the Court on issues and rules relating to appellate procedure, has an immediate mission in 2013: to help the Court devise appropriate rules to deal with electronic filing of appellate court documents, including briefs. Electronic filing is not yet in place for the appellate courts, but is expected to come to Minnesota in the next 12 months. As Reporter for the Advisory Committee, David will lead the effort to draft rules and circulate them for Committee comment, and ultimately draft a report to the Court containing the Committee's recommendations.
David Herr is a highly regarded appellate lawyer and complex case litigator. He is frequently sought out to provide practical and sophisticated advice on how to resolve difficult, multi-party disputes in trial courts and arbitral forums, as well as in the appellate courts.
