On Appeal

The AP&S Appellate Law Blog


Unlike a notice of appeal, which is filed with the trial court, a petition for issuance of a writ of certiorari (and the accompanying filing fee of $150 per petitioner) is filed with the Supreme Court.  R.I. Sup. Ct. R. App. P. 13(a).  In cases that are assigned to a single judge, it is good practice to provide the trial justice with a courtesy copy of the petition for writ of certiorari so that he or she is aware that the petition has been filed.
