Rule 68. [Applicable to cases filed on or after August 7, 1997.] Offer of Judgment.

(Adopted by SCO 5 October 9, 1959; amended by SCO 818 effective August 1, 1987; and by SCO 1281 effective August 7, 1997)
Note to SCO 1281: In 1997 the legislature amended AS 09.30.065 concerning offers of judgment. According to ch. 26, § 52, SLA 1997, the amendment to AS 09.30.065 has the effect of amending Civil Rules 68 and 82 by requiring the offeree to pay costs and reasonable actual attorney fees on a sliding scale of percentages in certain cases, by eliminating provisions relating to interest, and by changing provisions relating to attorney fee awards. According to § 55 of the session law, the amendment to AS 09.30.065 applies "to all causes of action accruing on or after the effective date of this Act." However, the amendments to Civil Rule 68 adopted by paragraph 5 of this order are applicable to all cases filed on or after August 7, 1997. See paragraph 17 of this order.
