RULE 4.1 AUTHORITY OF COURTS PENDING APPEAL (a) Superior Court. After a notice of appeal has been filed, the superior court has authority to perform all acts necessary to secure the fair and orderly review of the case. (b) Court of Limited Jurisdiction. After a notice of appeal has been filed, and while the case is on appeal, the court of limited jurisdiction has authority to act in a case only to the extent provided in these rules, unless the superior court limits or expands that authority in a particular case. (c) Questions Relating to Indigency. The court of limited jurisdiction has authority to decide questions relating to indigency. (d) Attorney Fees and Costs. When a party is entitled to an award of attorney fees or costs, the court of limited jurisdiction has authority to determine such an award for a party's efforts in the court of limited jurisdiction. A party may obtain review of a court of limited jurisdiction's decision on attorney fees or costs in the same review proceeding as that challenging the judgment without filing a separate notice of appeal. [Amended effective September 1, 2006.]
