Update your forms documents to reflect amendments to the appellate rules that went into effect January 1, 2014.

For example, the Supreme Court revised the sample Notice of Appeal found in the Appellate rule to now identify the specific ground by which a direct appeal to the Supreme Court is taken.

The sample forms were also amended to make clear that the certificate of service must identify the specific means of service used (i.e., mail, hand delivery, third party carrier) and specifically identify--by name--the persons served.

Also remember that as of January 1, you can only file one copy of the acknowledgement of oral argument.

Finally, the two-year grace period for defective filing fo the Notice of Appeal expired on January 1.
