GR 9 COVER SHEET
Suggested Rule Changes
Purpose: Compiling a set of clerk’s papers is frequently an expensive and cumbersome task for appellate counsel. The purpose of this amendment is to simplify this task by requiring the trial court clerk to make available a complete set of clerk’s papers to the parties or their counsel, subject to payment of the clerk’s reasonable reproduction expenses. With advances in computer technology, electronic filing, and document scanning, many trial court clerks have the ability to compile and reproduce the clerk’s papers in electronic format, and, in fact, transmit the clerk’s papers to the appellate court electronically. This amendment will allow the parties or counsel to obtain a computer generated set of clerk’s papers in electronic format where the trial court clerk prepares the clerk’s papers electronically, subject to payment of the clerk’s reproduction expenses, at a rate not to exceed that charged by the clerk for photocopying the clerk’s.
