Civil Rules Committee

The Civil Rules Committee is a standing Committee appointed by the Colorado Supreme Court. It has been in existence since 1978. The Committee is charged with the responsibility of periodic review, correcting, updating and improvement of all of the State Court Civil Rules except Appellate Rules [now handled by the Appellate Rules Committee] and the Colorado Rules of Evidence [now handled by the Evidence Rules Committee].  The Committee is chaired by the Honorable Michael H. Berger of the Colorado Court of Appeals.

The Supreme Court Liaison to the Committee is Justice Allison H. Eid. The Committee is staffed by Carol Haller, Legal Counsel, Colorado Judicial Department, Jenny Moore, Deputy Supreme Court Librarian, and Cecily Nicewicz, Law Librarian. The Committee is composed of 22 members of varying backgrounds, including: district and county judges; appellate judges; trial court magistrates; a district court clerk; law school professors; and attorney litigators in various areas of practice such as: personal injury; business; family law; legal aid; real estate; collections; professional liability; and general litigation.
