Rule 33.14. Motion for Rehearing
(a) Timing and Content. No later than 15 days after entry of the trial court's final decision on a petition, any party aggrieved by the decision may file a motion for rehearing. The motion must state in detail the grounds of the court's alleged errors.
(b) Response and Reply. An opposing party may not file a response to a motion for rehearing unless the court requests one, but the court may not grant a motion for rehearing without requesting and considering a response. If a response is filed, the moving party may file a reply no later than 10 days after the response is served.
(c) Stay. The State's filing of a motion for rehearing automatically stays an order granting a new trial until the trial court decides the motion. For any relief the trial court grants to a defendant other than a new trial, whether to grant a stay pending further review is within the discretion of the trial court.
(d) Effect on Appellate Rights. Filing of a motion for rehearing is not a prerequisite to filing a petition for review under Rule 33.16.
(e) Disposition if Motion Granted. If the court grants the motion for rehearing, it may either amend its previous ruling without a hearing or grant a new hearing and then either amend or reaffirm its previous ruling. The court must state its reasons for amending a previous ruling. The State must notify the victim of any action taken by the court if the victim has requested notification.
