RE: Rule 12, N.D.R.App.P., Docketing the Appeal
Rule 12 contains several proposed amendments designed to implement the change to filing materials related to the Notice of Appeal directly with the Supreme Court. In particular, the proposed changes make clear that the payment of the docket fee is required on filing of the Notice of Appeal. There is also a new provision setting out how to petition for waiver of the docket fee.
