Rule 480. Filing and Docketing Application: Answer (1984)


The clerk of the Supreme Court shall receive the application for writ of error, shall file it and the accompanying record from the Court of Appeals, and shall enter the filing upon the docket, but he shall not be required to receive the application and record 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 letter of the filing of the application in the Supreme Court, and, if no answer has been filed in the Court of Appeals, respondent shall have fifteen days after the filing of the application in the Supreme Court within which to file an answer unless additional time is allowed. When an answer is filed or the time for filing it has expired, the application shall be deemed submitted to the court and ready for disposition. The court may dispense with notice and may grant or deny the application immediately upon the filing of the application when, in its opinion, the circumstances require it.
