PREFATORY COMMENT TO THE 2015 AMENDMENTS
The 2015 amendments make extensive changes to the Arizona Rules of Civil Appellate Procedure (“ARCAP”).
These amendments “restyle” the ARCAP. Restyled rules have informative titles and subheadings to help readers efficiently locate a particular rule or provision. Restyling also makes the rules more understandable by using clearer and simpler language. The restyled rules avoid long sentences, ambiguous terminology (such as the word “shall”), and legal jargon. These restyled rules also use consistent formatting conventions and terminology.
The amended rules also contain substantive changes. Some of these changes are in rules involving electronic filing, or in provisions concerning the preparation and transmittal of the record on appeal. Several of the amended rules borrow language from their counterparts in the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure.
The wording of an amended rule may be very different, or only slightly different, from the rule that it replaces. The intent of these differences is to make the ARCAP easier to understand and use. Prior case law continues to be authoritative, unless it would be inappropriate because of a new requirement or provision in these amended rules.
The amended rules incorporate substantive matters contained within comments to the former ARCAP, and these rules therefore delete almost all of those comments. Appellate litigants may continue to refer to comments to pre-2015 versions of the ARCAP to the extent those comments still apply to these amended rules, and if they are pertinent to a particular point or issue.
