Proposed Rules ArchivesRAP 13.4 - Discretionary Review of Decision Terminating Review
GR 9 COVER SHEET
Suggested Rule Changes
Purpose: Subsection (g)’s current provision, allowing the clerk to serve the parties with a petition, parallels former RAP 10.5, which provided that the clerk, and not the parties, should serve appellate briefs. The current version of RAP 13.4(g) is an anachronism as it places an unnecessary burden on the appellate court and leads to confusion and delay regarding the date of service. Petitions, answers to petitions, and replies, when authorized by RAP 13.4(d), should be served by the party filing the document.
