At the direction of the Indiana Supreme Court, the Supreme Court Rules Committee has developed proposed changes to the time table for completing transcripts for appeals. The goal of the proposed changes is to reduce the time from the conclusion of a case to the issuance of an appellate decision. The standard for completion of a transcript established by the American Bar Association is thirty (30) days and this is the same time limit used in the federal courts. Only three other states have a time limit as long as ninety (90) days.

The Committee invites public comment on the proposed rule amendments. Those wishing to comment should do so, in writing, not later than June 23, 2014.
