Court Adopts Amendment to Local Rule of Practice 35, Guardian ad Litem. The
rule was modified to align with recent amendments to Superintendence Rule 48 through 48.07. The rule authorizes appointments solely as a guardian ad litem, disallowing a dual appointment as guardian ad litem and attorney for a child in cases involving the allocation of parental rights and responsibilities. It also permits limited scope appointments to address a specific issue or issues.
