Idaho Supreme Court Clarification on Case Information Sheets

The Administrative Office of the Courts plans to examine court rules governing case information sheets used in civil cases.

The Idaho Rules of Civil Procedure and Idaho Rules of Family Law Procedure currently require the filing of a “completed” case information sheet. This review is intended to find a solution to incomplete filings commonly seen across the state.

Recent Judicial Branch guidance regarding the current rules caused unintended complications with certain court filings. The Courts express an apology about that, and this guidance has been rescinded pending the review described above.

In the meantime, please do your best when filing a case information sheet to ensure it is as complete as possible.
