The following proposed coordinating amendments codify an existing practice. In response to recent changes in the law, the juvenile court now automatically abstracts to the district court unpaid restitution orders entered as civil judgments.
URCP058B. Satisfaction of judgment. Amend. Updates terminology and provides that the juvenile court will file an abstract of judgment in the district court upon entering an unpaid restitution order as a civil judgment. Also provides that If the judgment falls under Rule 58 of the Utah Rules of Juvenile Procedure, the judgment creditor must file an acknowledgment of satisfaction in both the district court and the juvenile court within 28 days after full satisfaction of the judgment.
URJP058. Victim rights. Amend. Provides that if the juvenile court enters an unpaid restitution order as a civil judgment, the juvenile court will file an abstract of judgment in the district court. The victim is entitled to enforce the judgment in the district court and the judgment shall be treated in all respects as if the judgment was originally entered in the district court.
URCP 006. Time. Repeal and reenact. Conforms the computation of time to the approach of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. Deadlines of 30 days or less in several rules will be modified to a uniform 7/14/21/28 days. The list of deadlines proposed to be amended is linked. If approved, those rules will be amended to change the deadlines as indicated, but the rules will not be published for comment. Deadlines not listed are not proposed to be amended.
