Messing Joins Forum of Experts to Comment on Federal Rules
Ellen Messing was recently an invited participant at “A Forum for Understanding and Comment on the Proposed Federal Rules Amendments,” a meeting held at the University of Denver facilitated by the Institute for the Advancement of the American Legal System (IAALS). According to IAALS, the forum was held to “bring together a small and select group of lawyers, academics, and judges from around the country, from all areas of practice” to comment on the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.
The Federal Rules of Civil Procedure govern civil lawsuits brought in federal courts. Because employees must often enforce their rights in federal courts, they are especially vulnerable to amendments to the Federal Rules. To protect the interests of employees in the federal rule-making process, Ms. Messing attended the forum as a representative of the National Employment Lawyers Association (NELA), an organization advocating for the rights of employees.
