Filing Appeals in Advance Will Ensure That You Beat the Clock

Filing Appeals in Advance Will Ensure That You Beat the Clock by Liza Bobo

{1:10 minutes to read} Summer is over, and we are transitioning into fall. Time moves quickly, and, before we know it, the end of the calendar year is upon us.

With this in mind, it’s a good idea for attorneys to consider filing the necessary papers in the appellate court sooner than later.

This is especially important in light of the time that is required to put an appeal together, which includes assembling documents, speaking with clients, etc. Should attorneys get side-tracked with meetings, court dates, and new clients, they may realize too late that they’ve run out of time.

In the second circuit, as per the scheduling order, the main opening brief must be filed, and the Joint Appendix must also be filed. Parties are encouraged to consult with each other to determine the content of the Joint Appendix if there is a problem or delays, then it is advised to contact the case manager to discuss the issues delaying moving forward. Some delays cannot necessarily be foreseen—and so, ample buffer time becomes all the more important.

Planning and timing dates and deadlines ensures that everything runs smoothly. If you need assistance, please contact us today.
