Rule 507. Mandate to Issue (1978)


When a judgment or decree of the supreme court has become final, the clerk of the court shall issue and deliver the court's mandate in the cause to the lower court without further payment of costs. In cases in which the supreme court declines to grant an application for writ of error, costs of the supreme court shall be paid in the court of civil appeals and the mandate issued from that court. Every mandate issued by the supreme court shall contain the file number in the trial court.
