LRALJ 10.2 DISMISSAL OF APPEAL (a) Involuntary Dismissal/Continuances. In the event that the provisions of RALJ 7.2(a) have not been met and if a motion to dismiss has not been filed by a party, the clerk of the superior court, pursuant to LRAJ 4.1(a)(1), will prepare and mail a Notice of Dismissal For Want of Prosecution (form JRA 10.0100-6/81) to the parties or their lawyers that the appeal will be dismissed for want of prosecution unless within 14 days good cause is shown why the case should be continued as a pending appeal. If a motion for continuance supported by good cause is not filed and noted for hearing within that time, the clerk will present a Motion and Order Dismissing Appeal to District/Municipal Court (form JRA 10.0200-4/81) to the judge to whom the appeal has been assigned or, if unassigned, to the presiding judge for signature. Hearings on motions for continuance will be noted on the motion docket for the assigned judge per LCR 40(b)(10), or if the appeal is unassigned, before the presiding judge. In the event that there has been no action of record for 90 days, the clerk may present a motion and order dismissing the appeal forthwith. Amended Effective 9/1/99 (b) In event that the appellant has not filed a designation of record per RALJ 6.2(a) the superior court clerk shall send out a notice of closure to the parties or their attorneys that the appeal has been deemed abandoned and the superior court file is closed. Such closing of the file shall only be vacated upon an order of the superior court showing good cause.
