Following a two-year review process, the Supreme Court adopted amendments to Gov Bar R. V. Amendments in Sections 1-3 change the name of the Board of Commissioners on Grievances and Discipline to the Board of Professional Conduct. Sections 5 and 6 contain several notable changes regarding jurisdiction and operation of certified grievance committees.

Other significant changes were made to former Section 8(F), now Section 26 File Inventories that at (A) eliminate the 60 day period to commence a file inventory, (C) allow costs of certain file inventories may be recovered from a disciplined attorney or the estate of a deceased lawyer, and (E) provide that inventoried files in possession of disciplinary counsel may be destroyed after 7 years.
