Rules of Criminal Procedure

URCrP 038. Appeals from justice court to district court. Amend. The proposed amendment creates a process for justice court defendants to file a motion reinstating the time for appeal, consistent with Manning v. State. The proposed amendment also eliminates the requirement for justice courts to send copies of documents to the district court when an appeal is filed.

    How, exactly, is the appeal to be filed with the District Court? Currently the paperwork submitted by the Justice Court is used to open the District Court case. Is there a process to transfer these pleadings via an internal, CORIS transfer? If not, is it the responsibility of the District Court to access the Justice Court database?
    Also, how will this notice be given to the District Court? Phone call? Email?
