Tip: Service Copies of Petition for Review Need Not Include Opinion
Although rule 8.504(b)(4) requires the Court of Appeal opinion be attached to a petition for review filed in the Supreme Court if the petition seeks review of the opinion, it is silent as to service copies. (See rule 8.500(e), (f).) The Court of Appeal, of course, already has the opinion; and Attorney General or County Counsel, CCAP, superior court, and counsel for other parties have received it as well. For this reason, service copies do not need to include the opinion. For paper copies, omitting the opinion saves copying and delivery costs for appointed counsel and saves recipients the cost of storing duplicate opinions.
