Supps and answers go from the longer of 30 pages or 14,000 wordsw to 25 pages or 9,000 words. In practice, this means shrinking the max size of a supp prepared in Courier New from about 62 pages to about 41 pages. The new word limitation is the same as that for cert petitions filed at the Supremes. Replies shrink from 15 pages or 7,000 words to 10 pages or 4,000 words.
Supps in cases returning to CAAF following remand now must specify any issue on which certiorari would be sought, signaling a change to CAAF’s previous practice of automatically granting review of returning cases.
And Grostefon submissions to CAAF will now be capped at 15 pages. The new Rule 21A also prescribes a format for presenting Grostefon issues.
