FIFTH DISTRICT COURT OF APPEAL

SPECIAL NOTICE TO ATTORNEYS AND PARTIES


On June 8, 1987, the Supreme Court of Florida finalized the amendments
to the Florida Rules of Appellate Procedure. The Florida Bar, Re: Amendments
To Florida Rules Of Appellate Procedure and Rules Of Judicial Administration, 12
F.L.W. 286 (Fla. June 8, 1987). The amendments, which became effective on Wednes-
day, July 1, 1987, and which will substantially affect the prosecution of all
appeals in the district courts of appeal, are summarized as follows:

1. Satisfactory financial arrangements must be made or one-half of the esti-
mated transcript costs must be deposited with the court reporter upon
service of the designation. Fla.R.App.P. 9.200(b)(1).

.2. All court reporters must acknowledge to the appropriate district court of
appeal the receipt of counsel's designation and the estimated completion
date for the designated transcripts. Fla.R.App.P. 9.200(b)(3). Inasmuch as
the acknowledgement must be made at the bottom of counsel's designation to
the reporter, the Supreme Court has adopted a revised "designation to re-
porter" form which should be utilized by counsel. See Fla.R.App.P. 9.900(g).

3. Upon receipt of the designation, court reporters are authorized and required
to request additional time directly from the district court of appeal if the
estimated completion date for the designated transcripts exceeds thirty (30)
days. Fla.R.App.P. 9.200(b)(3). However, any subsequent requests) for an
enlargement of time for preparation of the transcripts must be submitted by
counsel pursuant to and in compliance with Florida Rule of Appellate Proce-
dure 9.300(a).

4. All requests for an enlargement of time for any act required by the appel-
late rules must be made to the appropriate district court of appeal. The
trial court no longer possesses concurrent jurisdiction to grant extensions
of time relative to the appellate process. Fla.R.App.P. 9.600(a).

Counsel should especially note that there has been no change to Florida Rule
of Appellate Procedure 9.200(e) and the responsibility continues to be on the
Appellant or Petitioner to ensure that the court reporter and the clerk of the
trial court prepare and transmit the record in accordance with the appellate
rules.

As previously indicated, the amendments to the appellate rules become effect-
ive on July 1, 1987. The purpose of this special notice is to alert all attorneys
and parties to the forthcoming rule changes prior to their effective date and to
the Court's intention to enforce the new amendments. Accordingly, all counsel
who regularly practice before the Fifth District Court of Appeal should acquire a
copy of the June 8, 1987, Supreme Court Opinion adopting the new rule changes and
become familiar with the contents thereof.
