The Florida Supreme Court is extending a public comment period for a rules petition submitted by its COVID-19 workgroup that is designed to promote greater use of “communications technology.”

Centering on a proposed rewrite to Florida Rule of General Practice and Judicial Administration 2.530 (Communications Technology), the package is also drawn to six other rule sets — Civil Procedure, Criminal Procedure, Probate Rules, Traffic Court, Small Claims, and Appellate Procedure.
