Editors' Notes

ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICE OF COURTS COMMENTARY
1977:
This rule is designed to effect an orderly transition from the old courts of limited jurisdiction to the new system. The rule has three elements. First, it provides that judges and officers and agents of these courts shall notify the circuit clerk of the style and nature of cases which will be held over for disposition under the new system. This will allow preparation of the district court's docket in advance. Second, the proposal tracks the constitutional section relating to the transfer of pending cases to the new system. Finally, the rule provides for the transfer of the papers, etc. of each pending case in an orderly manner, giving preference to cases in which a party is being held in detention.
