Rule 484. Where Application Dismissed or Refused
When the application shall have been filed for a period of ten days, if the court determines to refuse or dismiss the same, whether the respondent has answered or not, the clerk of the court will retain the application, together with the transcript and accompanying papers, for fifteen days from the date of rendition of the judgment refusing or dismissing the writ. At the end of that time, if no motion for rehearing has been filed, or upon the overruling or dismissal of such motion, in case one has been filed, the clerk of the Supreme Court shall transmit to the Court of Civil Appeals to which the writ of error is sought a certified copy of the orders denying or dismissing such application and of the order overruling the motion for a rehearing thereof, and shall return the papers which belong to that court to the clerk thereof, but shall retain the application for writ of error.
