A smidgen of this and that: Eleventh Circuit revised Rules and Internal Operating Procedures (IOPs)

The Eleventh Circuit revised Rules and Internal Operating Procedures (IOPs) took effect on April 1, 2009.

Some of the revisions:
• Establish procedures for filing replacement briefs. 11th Cir. R. 31-6, Replacement Briefs.
• Describe procedures that the Court will use when an opinion contains a citation to
materials on the internet. IOP 10, Citation to Internet Materials in an Opinion (following
FRAP 36).
• Rescind 11th Cir. R. 40-4, Review of Order Dismissing Appeal for Lack of Jurisdiction, because the rule is no longer necessary.
• Clarify that since a published order dismissing an appeal is subject to rehearing (panel or en banc), the time for issuance of the mandate in that circumstance is governed by FRAP 41(b). 11th Cir. R. 41-3, Published Order Dismissing Appeal.

The Rules and Internal Operating Procedures of the Eleventh Circuit are available on the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeal's Web site.
