Rule 507. Mandate to Issue (1973)


On the rendition of a final judgment or decree in the Supreme Court, the clerk of said court shall issue and deliver the mandate of the court to the lower court without any further payment of costs, except that no mandate shall be issued at the request of a party against whom any of the costs of the appeal have been taxed and who has not already paid or secured the payment of such costs, until all costs taxed against such party have been paid, subject to the provisions of the succeeding rule. In cases where the Supreme Court declines to grant an application for writ of error, the costs of the Supreme Court shall be paid in the Court of Civil Appeals and the mandate issued from that court.

Amended by order of Oct. 3, 1972, eff. Feb. 1, 1973: Rule has been rewritten to provide for withholding the mandate only when the mandate is requested by a party against whom costs of appeal have been taxed and who has not paid or secured the payment of such costs.
