Clerk of Appellate Courts
Line

REQUESTS FOR RECORDS      Rule 45

The Clerk is the custodian of records for the Supreme Court and the Court of Appeals. The rules provide that no one may withdraw the record of a case during the pendency of an appeal except by or on behalf of a party. After the parties complete their briefs, the case is screened, assigned to the Court of Appeals or retained by the Supreme Court, and placed on a docket. (Workers' Compensation cases are assigned to the Court of Appeals upon filing of the notice of appeal.) After the case is placed on a docket, the case may be called up by the appropriate court at any time. After a mandate has been issued, any member of the bar in good standing may withdraw from the clerk's office any record after paying in advance a fee of $15.00. Incarcerated pro se litigants may withdraw from the clerk's office the appellate record in their cause after paying in advance a fee of $15.00. A reasonable mailing and handling fee of $10.00 will be assessed in the event the record requires mailing to the requesting party. Records containing more than 10 volumes will be assessed actual mailing cost. No record shall be held out of the clerk's office more than 90 days. If the record is held out past the 90 day period, a record delinquency fee will be assessed in the amount of $50.00. (Amended January 3, 2002)

Requests for records are processed twice daily. In general requests received by 10:00 may be picked up after 1:00; requests received by 2:00 may be picked up after 4:00; and, requests received after 2:00 can be picked up the following day.
