Rule 515. Motion for Rehearing (Dec1941)


A motion for rehearing may be filed with the clerk of the court within fifteen days after the date of rendition of the judgment or decision of the court or the order refusing or dismissing an application for writ of error, whether such date be in the same or a succeeding term of such court, and not later; provided, however, that the court in cases of emergency where the ends of justice require it, may deny the right to file such motion. The grounds relied upon for the rehearing shall be distinctly specified in the motion. The motion shall give the name and residence of the counsel of the opposing party if known, and if not known, the name and residence as shown in the record. The party filing such motion shall deliver or mail to each opposing party, or his attorney of record, a true copy of such motion, and shall note on the motion so filed with the clerk that such copies have been so furnished. Upon his failure to do so, he shall accompany his motion with or furnish to the clerk on his request a sufficient number of duplicates or copies thereof for the clerk to use in complying with the provisions of Rule 516. Failure to supply such copies on request of the clerk may result in dismissal of the motion.

Amended by order of Sept. 20, 1941, eff. Dec. 31, 1941: The last three sentences of the rule have been added. See also Rule 458 and Note thereto.
