The Supreme Court on Tuesday released revisions in its Rules, effective on Feb. 16.  Among the changes, the Court has specified that it will not consider any request to extend the deadline for filing amicus briefs at the merits stage. It also shortened the allotment of words for reply briefs on the merits from 7,500 to 6,000, restoring a volume that had prevailed previously.  A press release announcing the revisions is here.  The order implementing the changes, and the text of the revisions themselves, are at this link.
