Proposed Rules ArchivesRAP 4.2 - Direct Review of Superior Court Decision by Supreme Court
GR 9 COVER SHEET
Suggested Amendment to RAP 4.2
DIRECT REVIEW OF SUPERIOR COURT DECISION
Purpose: The proposal amends section (b) to state that a statement of grounds for direct review should be filed only if the notice of appeal or notice for discretionary review is directed to the Supreme Court. The change is intended to clarify that: (1) a statement of grounds is required only when direct review is being sought in the Supreme Court; and (2) the statement of grounds for direct review is not a pleading that may be used to request transfer of review from the Court of Appeals to the Supreme Court.
The rule’s sections (c) and (d) are amended to specify that both the statement of grounds for direct review and the answer to that statement need to meet the formatting requirements for appellate briefs found in RAP 10.4(a).
The technical changes in this proposal reflect current appellate practice.
