Effective December 1, 2016 (absent contrary Congressional action) Fed. R. Civ. P. 6(d) has been amended as follows:
(d) Additional Time After Certain Kinds of Service.
When a party may or must act within a specified time after being served and
service is made under Rule 5(b)(2)(C) (mail), (D) (leaving with the clerk), or (F)
(other means consented to), 3 days are added after the period would otherwise
expire under Rule 6(a).
This amendment eliminates the additional 3 days added after service under 5(b)(2)(E)
(Electronic means). Please review the “ADVISORY COMMITTEE NOTES” “2016
Amendment” located after Fed. R. Civ. P. 6(d) for any clarification.
