Scope of Rules; Title a Scope of Rules. These rules are to be known as the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure.
Federal Rule of Appellate Procedure 2: Suspension of Rules On its own or a party's motion, a court of appeals may-to expedite its decision or for other good cause-suspend any provision of these rules in a particular case and order proceedings as it directs, except as otherwise provided in Rule 26 b.
Suspension of Circuit Rules In the interest of expediting decision or for other good cause, the court may suspend the requirements of these Circuit Rules.

They may then proceed on appeal as a single appellant. A specify the party or parties taking the appeal by naming each one in the caption or body of the notice, but an attorney representing more than one party may describe those parties with such terms as "all plaintiffs," "the defendants," "the plaintiffs A, B, et al.
When a defendant in a criminal case appeals, the clerk must also serve a copy of the notice of appeal on the defendant, either by personal service or by mail addressed to the defendant. The clerk must promptly send a copy of the notice of appeal and of the docket entries-and any later docket entries-to the clerk of the court of appeals named in the notice.
The district clerk must note, on each copy, the date when the notice of appeal was filed. The clerk must note on the docket the names of the parties to whom the clerk mails copies, with the date of mailing.
Service is sufficient despite the death of a party or the party's counsel. Upon filing a notice of appeal, the appellant must pay the district clerk all required fees.
The district clerk receives the appellate docket fee on behalf of the court of appeals. When the clerk of the district court transmits to the clerk of this court a copy of the notice of appeal, the district court clerk shall include any docketing statement.
In civil cases the clerk of the district court shall include the judgments or orders under review, any transcribed oral statement of reasons, opinion, memorandum of decision, findings of fact, and conclusions of law. If a proceeding is docketed without prepayment of the docketing fee, the appellant shall pay the fee within 14 days after docketing.
If the appellant fails to do so, the clerk is authorized to dismiss the appeal. The appellant must serve on all parties a docketing statement and file it with the clerk of the district court at the time of the filing of the notice of appeal or with the clerk of this court within seven days of filing the notice of appeal.
The docketing statement must comply with the requirements of Circuit Rule 28 a. If there have been prior or related appellate proceedings in the case, or if the party believes that the earlier appellate proceedings are sufficiently related to the new appeal, the statement must identify these proceedings by caption and number.
The statement also must describe any prior litigation in the district court that, although not appealed, a arises out of the same criminal conviction, or b has been designated by the district court as satisfying the criteria of 28 U.
If any of the parties to the litigation appears in an official capacity, the statement must identify the current occupant of the office. The docketing statement in a collateral attack on a criminal conviction must identify the prisoner's current place of confinement and its current warden; if the prisoner has been released, the statement must describe the nature of any ongoing custody such as supervised release and identify the custodian.
If the docketing statement is not complete and correct, the appellee must provide a complete one to the court of appeals clerk within 14 days after the date of the filing of the appellant's docketing statement.
Failure to file the statement within 28 days of the filing of the notice of appeal will be treated as abandonment of the appeal, and the appeal will be dismissed.
When the appeal is docketed, the court will remind the litigants of these provisions. The attorney whose name appears on the docketing statement or other document first filed by that party in this court will be deemed counsel of record, and a separate notice of appearance need not be filed.
If the name of more than one attorney is shown, the attorney who is counsel of record must be clearly identified. There can be only one counsel of record. If no attorney is so identified, the court will treat the first listed as counsel of record.
The court will send documents only to the counsel of record for each party, who is responsible for transmitting them to other lawyers for the same party. The docketing statement or other document must provide the post office address, email address and telephone number of counsel of record.
The names of other members of the Bar of this Court and, if desired, their post office and email addresses, may be added but counsel of record must be clearly identified.Find definitions related to technology, disability and law in this Glossary of ADA Terms, or you may visit our ADA Acronyms & Abbreviations page, or Search Dictionary urbanagricultureinitiative.comd links .
