A mandate is the written notification by the clerk of the appellate court to the trial court and to the parties of an appellate court decision terminating review. No mandate issues for an interlocutory decision of the Appellate Court. The clerk of the Court of Appeals will issue the mandate for a Court of Appeals decision terminating review upon stipulation of the parties that no motion for reconsideration or petition for review be filed.
In the absence of that stipulation, and except to the extent that the mandate is stayed as provided in rule 12.6, the clerk will issue the mandate: 30 days after the decision is filed- unless a motion for reconsideration for the decision has been earlier filed, a petition for review to the supreme court has been earlier filed, or the decision is a ruling of the commissioner or clerk and a motion to modify the ruling has been earlier filed
