DOD/DOA RIN: 0702-AA69 Publication ID: Fall 2016 
Title: Release of Official Information and Appearance of Witnesses in Litigation 
Abstract:

The Department of the Army proposes to amend its regulation concerning policies and procedures for release of official information and testimony of Army witnesses in federal and state courts where the Army or Department of Defense (DoD) has an interest in the matter. This regulation was last published in the Federal Register on July 29, 1994 (59 FR 38236). At that time, a complete Army Regulation was codified. This revision removes a large portion of the currently codified part that does not apply to the public and is now included in DoD internal guidance. Army Regulation 27-40, Litigation, dated 19 September 1994, is the correspondiing document where the interal guidance is located. The revisions to this rule will be reported in future status updates as part of DoD's retrospective plan under Executive Order 13563 completed in August 2011. DoD's full plan can be accessed at http://www.regulations.gov/#!docketDetail;D=DOD-2011-OS-0036.
