210 Pa. Code Rule 2155. Allocation of Cost of Reproduced Record.

Rule 2155. Allocation of Cost of Reproduced Record.

 (a)  General rule.—Unless the parties otherwise agree the cost of reproducing the record shall initially be paid by the appellant, but if the appellant considers that parts of the record designated by the appellee for inclusion are unnecessary for a determination of the issues presented the appellant may so advise the appellee and the appellee shall advance the cost of including such parts. If the appellee fails to advance such costs within ten days after written demand therefor, the appellant may proceed without reproduction of the parts of the record designated by appellee which the appellant considered to be unnecessary.

 (b)  Allocation by court.—The cost of reproducing the record shall be taxed as costs in the case pursuant to Chapter 27 (fees and costs in appellate courts and on appeal), but if either party shall cause material to be included in the reproduced record unnecessarily, the appellate court may on application filed within ten days after the last brief is filed, in its order disposing of the appeal impose the cost of reproducing such parts on the designating party.

   Official Note

   This rule reflects the fact that the appellate judge to whom a case is assigned for preparation of an opinion will ordinarily be in the best position to determine whether an excessive amount of the record has been included in the reproduced record by a party.

   See Rule 2189 for procedure in cases involving the death penalty.
