FRCP Amendments Not So “Stylistic” After All?

Back on May 14th, I noted that proposed amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure had been transmitted to Congress and noted that the vast majority of changes were intended to be “stylistic” only, i.e., not making any substantive change. I provided some links to advisory committee reports and other explanatory information.

But are the changes purely stylistic?  Adjunct Law Prof Blog points to an article by Columbia Law Professor Michael Dorf challenging that characterization, noting that despite the intent that the changes be stylistic only, some unintended ambiguities, and corresponding substantive changes, may result.
