Certification Filed
Filed By: Unassigned District 4
Submit Date: 4-30-2009
Decision: (G) Grant
Decision Date: 6-16-2009
ORD the certification is granted and the appeal is accepted for consideration of all issues raised before the court of appeals. When this court grants direct review upon certification, it acquires jurisdiction of the case, that is, the entire appeal, which includes all issues, not merely the issues certified or the issue for which the court accepts the certification... Further, the court has jurisdiction over issues not certified because the court may review an issue directly on its own motion.
FRO that within 30 days after the date of this order the appellant must file either a brief in this court or a statement that no brief will be filed; that within 20 days of filing, the respondent must file either a brief or a statement that no brief will be filed; and that if a brief is filed by the respondent, within 10 days of filing, the appellant must file either a reply brief or a statement that no reply brief will be filed; and
FRO that in any brief filed in this court the parties shall not incorporate by reference any portion of their court of appeals' brief; instead, any material upon which there is reliance should be restated in the brief filed in this court; and
FRO that in the event any part elects not to file a brief in this court, the briefs previously submitted by that party to the court of appeals shall stand as that party's brief in the Supreme Court; and
FRO that within the time period established for the filing of briefs, each party must provide the clerk of this court with copies of the briefs previously filed on behalf of that party in the court of appeals. If a party elects to file a new brief(s), 10 copies of their court of appeals brief(s) must be provided. If a party elects to stand on their court of appeals brief(s), 17 copies of each of their court of appeals brief(s) must be provided.
FRO that the parties shall be notified of the date and time for oral argument in this appeal in due course.
