     (f) Joint Appendix.  The appellant or petitioner shall be responsible for filing eight copies of a Joint Appendix, which shall be a separate document filed contemporaneously with the brief. 

 

(1)         Contents.  The Joint Appendix shall contain:

 

(A)       a copy of the decision of the Court of Criminal Appeals;

(B)         copies of unpublished opinions cited in the brief of the appellant or petitioner; the appellee or respondent will include copies of unpublished opinions cited in its brief as an attachment to its brief;

(C)         relevant extracts of rules and regulations;

(D)        relevant docket entries from the proceeding below;

(E)  relevant portions of the pleadings, charges, findings from the proceeding below; and

(F)  other parts of the record of trial to which the parties wish to direct the Court’s attention set out in chronological order.

 

(2)  Format.  The Joint Appendix will be produced on 8 ˝ by 11 inch white paper, be bound in a manner that is secure and does not obscure the text, and will permit the contents to lie reasonably flat when open.  The cover must be white and contain the caption of the case and docket number.  The cover shall be followed by a table of contents.  Pages in the Joint Appendix shall be sequentially numbered in a manner that does not obscure any page numbers reflected in the record of trial.  If the Joint Appendix consists of less than 100 pages, it may be reproduced by single-sided or double-sided copying.  If it consists of 100 pages or more, the Joint Appendix shall use double-sided copying.

 

Classified material or matters under seal that are to be included in a Joint Appendix shall be submitted in a separate volume, clearly designated as containing classified or sealed material.  Classified material will be handled in accordance with Rule 12.

 

(3)  Deadline.  Unless otherwise ordered by the Court, the Joint Appendix shall be filed contemporaneously with the brief of the appellant or petitioner.  If a cross-appeal is filed, a single Joint Appendix shall be filed for both appeals subject to a briefing schedule established by the Clerk.  The appellant or petitioner shall serve one copy on opposing counsel.

 

(4) Agreement and Designation.  The parties are encouraged to agree on the contents of the Joint Appendix.  In the absence of agreement, the appellant or petitioner must, within 10 days of the order granting the petition, the filing of a certificate for review by a Judge Advocate General, the notice of the docketing of a mandatory review case, or the filing of a petition for new trial, petition for extraordinary relief or a writ appeal petition, serve on the appellee or respondent a designation of the issues to be raised on appeal and of the parts of the record to be included in the Joint Appendix.  The appellee or respondent may, within 10 days after receiving the designation, serve on the appellant or petitioner a designation of the additional parts of the record to draw to the attention of the Court.  The appellant or petitioner must include the parts designated by the appellee or respondent in the Joint Appendix.  The parties must avoid engaging in unnecessary designation of parts of the record because unnecessary designation is wasteful, and the entire record is available to the Court.  In the event a cross-appeal is filed, the deadlines for designations shall be established by the Clerk.

 

(5) Dispensing With Requirement.  The Court, on its own motion or that of a party, may dispense with the requirement for a Joint Appendix and may permit a case to be heard on the original record with any copies of the record or parts thereof that the Court may order the parties to file.
