3) DESIGNATION OF THE RECORD - M.R.A.P. 10

Within 7 days after filing the Notice of Appeal, the appellant shall file with the trial court clerk and serve on the appellee and court reporter(s) a written designation of the record necessary for appeal. The designation should specifically list opening and closing arguments and voir dire if they are necessary to the appeal. If the entire record is not designated, a statement of issues is filed and served on the counsel for appellee. The appellee can file and serve on appellant and the court reporter an additional designation of the record. The additional designation is prepared at the expense of the appellant unless the trial court judge enters an order requiring payment by the appellee. Unless specifically designated, the record will not include the following: a) Subpoenas for any witness or defendant where the defendant has appeared; b) Papers relating to discovery, including depositions, interrogatories, requests for admission, and all related notices, motions or orders; c) Motions and Orders for continuance or extension of time; d) Documents concerning the organization of the grand jury or any list from which grand or petit jurors are selected; e) Pleadings subsequently replaced by amended pleadings; f) Jury voir dire. Briefs are not usually included in the record unless necessary to show that an issue was presented to the trial court.
