URCP005 Service and filing of pleadings and other papers. Amend. Adopts the prisoner mailbox rule, which provides that pleadings and papers filed by an inmate confined in an institution are timely if they are deposited in the institution’s internal mail system on or before the last day for filing.

URCP045 Subpoena. Amend. In conformity with Rule 84’s repeal, makes a technical amendment to paragraph (A)(1)(E).

URCP084 Forms. Repeal. Since the task of creating and updating court forms will now reside with the newly formed Judicial Council Standing Committee on Forms under UCJA Rules 1-205 and 3-117, the Supreme Court’s Advisory Committee on the Rules of Civil Procedure will no longer create forms.
