Local Rule Saves Time & Money for Attorneys & Their Clients by Liza Bobo

{1:00 minute to read} In the Second Circuit Court of Appeals, when preparing for specific types of appeals, such as immigration appeals (LR 34.2(a)(1)) or when filing in forma pauperis, or a Social Security case, many attorneys may not realize that under local rule LR 30.1(e) they do not have to file a Joint Appendix. Instead, they can simply refer to the lower Court’s original records and file a short addendum to the brief. 

In terms of preparing a Joint Appendix, only referring to the lower Court’s original record can save the attorney time and their client money.
