As announced by Chief Justice Davis on October 19, 2010, the Revised Rules of Appellate Procedure have been promulgated and became effective on December 1, 2010. The Revised Rules were placed for public comment on May 17, 2010. The Court received a number of insightful and helpful comments. Both the comments and the Court's own consideration resulted in a number of changes to the draft revisions that were placed for public comment.
