The Supreme Court Justices:
Please Note Changes to the Rules of Civil Appellate Procedure, Effective July 1, 2014:
Effective July 1, 2014, substantial changes to the Rules of Civil Appellate Procedure take effect. In particular, parties should take note that references in the amended rules to use of the appellate courts’ electronic filing system is permitted only by court order, as outlined in Rule 125.01.
Also effective July 1, 2014:
- No court order permits or requires use of electronic filing in the appellate courts.
- The required number of copies of documents filed with the appellate courts has been reduced, either by amendment of the rules, or for briefs, by standing order of the appellate courts (five copies- two unbound in the Supreme court, and one unbound in the Court of Appeals).
- Appendices to briefs are no longer allowed, but parties are required to file a limited addendum with a brief in the form required by amended Rule 130.
Parties are advised to read the Rules of Civil Appellate Procedure, as amended, effective July 1, 2014, for additional information on these and other changes that apply to all appeals pending on or filed after that date.
