The Pennsylvania Code website reflects the Pennsylvania Code changes effective through 53 Pa.B. 1782 (March 25, 2023).

210 Pa. Code Rule 2118. Summary of Argument.

Rule 2118. Summary of Argument.

 The summary of argument shall be a concise, but accurate, summary of the arguments presented in support of the issues in the statement of questions involved.

   Official Note

   In conjunction with 2013 amendments to Rules 2135 (length of briefs) and 2140 (brief on remand or following grant of reargument or reconsideration) adopting an optional word limit in lieu of page limits, the 2013 amendment eliminated the page limit for the summary of argument. Although the page limit on the summary of the argument was eliminated in 2013, verbosity continues to be discouraged. The appellate courts strongly disfavor a summary that is not concise.


   The provisions of this Rule 2118 amended May 16, 1979, effective September 30, 1979, 9 Pa.B. 1740; amended March 27, 2013, effective and applies to all appeals and petitions for review filed 60 days after adoption, 43 Pa.B. 2007. Immediately preceding text appears at serial page (231699).
