, added by ch. 57, § , SLA , amended Criminal Rule 16 by restricting discovery available to criminal defendants.
Note: Criminal Rule 16 was repealed and reenacted by chapter 95 SLA. In State v. Summerville, 926 P.2d 465 (Alaska App. 1996), the Alaska Court of Appeals found that the legislature's version of the rule was unconstitutional. This decision was affirmed by the Alaska Supreme Court in State v. Summerville, 948 P.2d 469 (Alaska 1997). Thus, the pre- existing version of the rule remains in effect.
