Colorado Appellate Rules Amended in Rule Change 2017(10)

On Wednesday, November 1, 2017, the Colorado State Judicial Branch announced Rule Change 2017(10), amending the Colorado Appellate Rules. Most of the changes are effective January 1, 2018, but the changes to Rule 30 are effective immediately.

The rule change revises Rule 10, “Record on Appeal,” in its entirety. The new 2018 Comment notes that Rule 10 contains the substance of Rule 11, which is to be deleted. Two new forms — Form 8, “Designation of Transcripts,” and Form 9, “Motion to Supplement the Record” — were adopted with the rule change. Rules 3.4 and 4.1 were amended to correct cross-references to former Rule 11 and replace them with the appropriate sections of new Rule 10.

Rules 5 and 12 had minor changes; in Rule 5, the word “record” was replaced with “transcripts,” and in Rule 12, a reference to the filing provisions of Rule 11 was deleted. Rule 30 also had a minor change; a reference to ICCES was changed to “Colorado Courts e-Filing.”
