Rule 486. Notice of Granting


When a writ of error is granted, and it is made to appear by affidavit that the respondent has no attorney of record and that his residence is unknown, the clerk shall cause notice of its granting of the writ to be published once each week for four consecutive weeks in some newspaper published in the county in which the case was tried. Where respondent has an attorney of record or the residence or respondent is known the clerk shall send said notice by mail to said attorney of record or respondent. Where publication of the notice is required the petitioner shall deposit with the clerk an amount sufficient to cover the cost thereof.
