Parties in future matters before the Court of Appeals will be required to file documents on digital disks, effective Dec. 8.
The Court of Appeals has announced it has amended its Rules of Practice which include reducing the number of paper copies for records, appendices and briefs from 25 to 20. The change followed consideration of all public comments received. Appeals to be considered under section 500.11 of the rules will be subject to a similar digital filing requirement. The new requirements regarding digital submissions will apply to all appeals for which the preliminary appeal statement is filed on or after Dec. 8.
