Advisory Committee Notes

The 2000 amendment attempts to clarify the interplay between Rules 6(a) and 6(e) by providing that the three extra days of response time that are added under Rule 6(e) following service of a paper by mail are not counted when determining whether to exclude weekends and holidays from the response time under Rule 6(a). This approach is consistent with the approach taken by the majority of federal courts that have interpreted the corresponding provisions of Rule 6 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.
