that are being considered by the Committee. The revisions proposed by the Rules Committee are posted
on the Judicial Branch website at www.jud.ct.gov/pb.htm and will also be printed in the May 26, 2020,

Pursuant to subsection (c) of section 51-14 of the Connecticut General Statutes, the Supreme Court has designated the Rules Committee to conduct this public hearing also for the purpose of receiving comments on any proposed new rule or any change in an existing rule that any member of the public deems desirable.
Because of the public health emergency and civil preparedness emergency declared by Governor Lamont on March 10, 2020, the Rules Committee public hearing will be conducted electronically using Microsoft Teams communication and collaboration platform. Individuals who would like to access the public hearing and/or meeting may do so by clicking here.
For every individual who wishes to access the public hearing and/or meeting, and for those who wish to speak at the public hearing, it is important that certain procedures are followed. All individuals who access the public hearing and meeting must at all times act in a professional and respectful manner. Any individual whose conduct is deemed by the Rules Committee to be disruptive or inappropriate, will be removed from the public hearing or meeting.
Individuals who would like to speak at the public hearing should access the hearing one-half hour before the hearing begins in order to be recognized and queued to speak. Each such speaker will be allowed five minutes to offer their remarks.
