N.D. Supreme Court Accepting Comments Until December 30th on Proposed Temporary Rule to Allow Out of State Lawyers Practice

This temporary rule would allow out of state attorneys to practice in North Dakota so long as the “judicial emergency” (i.e., representing those water protectors who have been arrested) ends.

Notice here. Send comments to supclerkofcourt@ndcourts.gov

Anyone can and should comment. Generally speaking, comments from N.D. barred lawyers in support of this rule would be very helpful. Comments out-of-state lawyers who would practice under this rule would be also helpful. Short comments from non-lawyers in support of the rule would also be good, and especially from those who live in-state.

Proposed rule here.

A lawyer authorized to practice law in another United States jurisdiction, and not disbarred, suspended from practice, or otherwise restricted from practice in any jurisdiction may provide legal services in this jurisdiction on a temporary basis. The legal services must be assigned and supervised through the North Dakota Bar Association, which shall adopt an admission application substantially comporting with that used by the United States District Court for the District of North Dakota.
