OFFICE RULES AND SUGGESTIONS.
Office Rules and Suggestions.
When a cause has been submitted on briefs of appellant, and
the appellee desires to file briefs, it will be necessary to file a motion,
asking that submission be set aside for that purpose. This
is required in order that counsel for opposite party may have notice
of the action desired and that the motion docket may show the
action of the court thereon.
Briefs should show the names of counsel on the cover, (merely
as a matter of convenience to the court and clerks), and
great care should be taken that printed briefs are not cut longer
than the width of the paper on which the transcript is written,
so that when they are rolled up with the transcript both may be
easily placed in the transcript cases.
The clerk shall not allow the transcript and papers, in a case
which has been decided, to pass from his custody, except to the
official reporter of the court.
In several instances, where an appeal has been dismissed, solely
upon the ground of insufficiency of amount in the appeal bond,
the court have allowed a new bond to be filed in the cause, and
upon its approval by the clerk of this court, have, upon motion
made by appellant for that purpose, set aside the judgment of
dismissal and ordered the cause to be reinstated on the docket.
When a motion for rehearing fails to show the name and residence
of the opposite party or his counsel, as required by statute,
the clerk will file and docket the motion, but he is not required
nor permitted to issue upon the same for service unless ordered
to do so by the court.
