Practice Note: When a Case in the CSC is Remanded or Transferred to the Court of Appeal

If a client’s case in the Supreme Court has been remanded or transferred for further proceedings in the Court of Appeal, counsel should be aware of rules 8.200(b) (supplemental briefs after remand or transfer from Supreme Court), 8.532(b) (finality of decision in the CSC), and 8.528 (disposition in the CSC) of the California Rules of Court. Those rules specify that any supplemental briefing in the Court of Appeal must be filed within 15 days after the Supreme Court order becomes final, and govern the timing of the finality of the Supreme Court order.
