Advisory Committee Notes
The amended rule includes both stylistic and substantive changes. The format of subdivisions is changed to maintain a consistent style across all rules. Subdivision (A) is amended to remove mandatory language regarding joint administration. Subdivision (B) is amended to clarify the time period intended in the last sentence. Subdivision (C) is amended to remove a reference to consolidation as distinct from the joint administration contemplated by this rule.
