The committee invites and welcomes public comments on CJEO draft formal opinions.  CJEO posts Invitations to Comment after draft formal opinions have been approved by the committee.  Comments may be submitted using the online comment form or by contacting the CJEO offices.  The committee members consider all comments when deciding whether to publish, modify, or withdraw the draft opinions.  (Cal. Rules of Court, rule 9.80(j)(2); CJEO rule 7(d).)

Comments submitted in response to an Invitation to Comment are confidential communications to the committee that may not be disclosed unless confidentiality is affirmatively waived.  (Cal. Rules of Court, rule 9.80(h)(3); CJEO rule 5(b)(1), (e).) CJEO will post those comments submitted with a statement waiving confidentiality or consenting to disclosure.  The online comment form provided with Invitations to Comment contain an option for waiver.  Comments submitted by email or any other means will only be posted if the comment contains a statement of waiver or consent to disclosure.  All comments received with a waiver of confidentiality will be posted for public review after the deadline for comment.
