10) CERTIORARI REVIEW - M.R.A.P. 17

A decision of the Court of Appeals is not reviewable by the Supreme Court except on writ of certiorari. However, a party seeking review of a judgment of the Court of Appeals must first file a Petition for Rehearing in the Court of Appeals.

Within 14 days after the disposition of the Petition for Rehearing, the original and ten copies of a petition for writ of certiorari must be filed in the Supreme Court and served on all other parties. The following shall be attached to the petition: 1) a copy of the Court of Appeals opinion and judgment, and 2) a copy of the Petition for Rehearing filed in the Court of Appeals. Briefs and oral argument shall not be allowed unless requested by the Supreme Court. The writ of certiorari may not exceed 10 pages. Within 7 days after the filing of an application for writ of certiorari, a party may file an original and ten copies of a written response which shall not exceed 10 pages. A copy of the respondent's response to the Petition for Rehearing filed in the Court of Appeals may be attached.
