HISTORY: Created 2021 c 202, § 5, eff. 6-29-21. Adopted by Supreme Court Order 2021-31, eff. 8-25-21
LRC NOTES
Legislative Research Commission Note (8-25-2021): This rule was created as a new section of Kentucky Rules of Evidence (KRE) 401 to 412 in 2021 RS SB 4 (2021 Ky. Acts ch. 202, sec. 5) and numbered 403A in codification. On August 25, 2021, the Kentucky Supreme Court entered Order 2021-31, adopting KRE 410A, a new Rule of Evidence identical to Rule 403A, and stating:
“[T]he new evidence rule created by the General Assembly in SB 4 (2021) constitutes a rule of practice and procedure. Accordingly, its adoption violates Section 116 of the Constitution of Kentucky and KRE I 102(b). Nevertheless, under KRE 1103, the chair of the Kentucky Evidence Rules Review Commission called a meeting to review the proposed new evidence rule. After a brief discussion, the Commission voted unanimously for the rule’s adoption.
“Because the Kentucky Evidence Rules Review Commission voted favorably for the new evidence rule, and because the Supreme Court agrees the rule should be granted comity, it is ORDERED under Section 116 of the Constitution of Kentucky that the new evidence rule set forth below, KRE 410A, Arrest or search warrant authorizing entry without notice, is hereby adopted.”
Under the authority of KRS 7.136, the Reviser of Statutes has renumbered Rule 403A as Rule 410A to correspond to the number assigned by the Kentucky Supreme Court.
<Research Note>
Legislative Research Commission Note (7-1-92): Although denominated “rules,” the elements of the Kentucky Rules of Evidence were enacted as statutes by the Kentucky General Assembly. See 1990 Ky. Acts ch. 88; 1992 Ky. Acts ch. 324. Originally codified as KRS Chapter 422A in 1990, the Kentucky Rules of Evidence were renumbered by the Reviser of Statutes, effective July 1, 1992, pursuant to 1992 Ky. Acts ch. 324, sec. 34. By an order dated May 12, 1992, the Kentucky Supreme Court “adopt[ed] so much of the Kentucky Rules of Evidence as enacted by HB 241 [1992 Ky. Acts ch. 324] as comes within the rule making power of the Court, pursuant to Ky. Const. sec. 116.”.
