Appellate Procedure: Appendixes (Action Required)

 

body

Summary

Summary

The Appellate Advisory Committee proposes to amend the rule governing the use of appendixes in lieu of clerk’s transcripts in unlimited civil appeals to eliminate the provision encouraging parties to prepare a joint appendix. This change is intended to reduce difficulties, and thus costs, for litigants associated with the efforts to reach a stipulation to use a joint appendix in cases in which litigants do not think this option is feasible.

Recommendation

Recommendation

The Appellate Advisory Committee recommends that the Judicial Council, effective January 1, 2016, amend rule 8.124 of the California Rules of Court to eliminate the provision encouraging parties to prepare a joint appendix.
