Rule 480. Filing Docketing Application: Answer (1957)


The Clerk of the Supreme Court shall receive all applications for writ of error, shall file the petition and accompanying record from the Court of Civil Appeals and enter the same upon the docket, but he shall not be required to receive same from the post office or express office unless the postage or express charges shall have been paid. The Clerk shall notify the attorneys of record by post card or letter of the filing and docketing of applications for writs of error in the Supreme Court, and respondent shall have fifteen days after the filing thereof, unless additional time is allowed, within which to file answer. When an answer is filed or the time for filing same has expired, the application shall be deemed submitted to the court and ready for disposition. The court may dispense with notice and may grant the writ immediately upon the filing of the application where, in its opinion, the circumstances require it.

Amended by order of March 19, 1957, eff. Sept. 1, 1957: Provision of the Rule dealing with answer to application for writ of error has been transferred from Rule 471. Time for filing answer changed from ten to fifteen days.
