Rules of Appellate Procedure – Effective November 1, 2016
URAP004 Establishes a new policy on time in which to appeal a judgment when a motion for attorney fees has been filed. A motion for attorney fees would have the same effect as a motion under Rules of Civil Procedure 50, 52 or 59, extending the time in which to appeal to 30 days after the order on the motion, effectively overturning ProMax Development Corp. v. Raile, 2000 UT 4, 998 P.2d 254.
URAP028A Outlines different processes for mediation in the Supreme Court and the Court of Appeals. Provides that the denial of a mediation request does not prevent parties from engaging in private mediation or settlement negotiations. Makes technical changes.
