  • On March 27, 2013, the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania promulgated a set of significant rule changes that will affect everyone who practices in a Pennsylvania appellate court. The new amendments require that briefs and some similar documents be much shorter than the rules now allow, and they mandate changes in the appearance of all appellate documents. They apply to all cases filed in an appellate court on or after May 26, 2013, but lawyers may begin complying with them now.
