(1) the appeal is not allowed by law;
(2) the appeal was not properly taken pursuant to Rule 7-502;
(3) the notice of appeal was not filed with the Register of Wills within the time prescribed by Rule 7-503;
(4) the record was not transmitted within the time prescribed by Rule 7-505, unless the court finds that the failure to transmit the record was caused by the act or omission of a judge, a Register of Wills, a clerk of court, or the appellee;
(5) the appeal has been withdrawn because the appellant filed a notice withdrawing the appeal or failed to appear as required for trial or any other proceeding on the appeal; or
(6) the case has become moot.
(b) Return of Record to Orphans' Court. Upon entry of the circuit court's order dismissing the appeal, the Clerk shall transmit a copy of the order to the Register of Wills. Any order of satisfaction shall be docketed in the estate proceeding. Unless the circuit court orders otherwise, the original papers included in the record shall be transmitted with the copy of the order.
