Rule 1.04

Prehearing Conference

Section Appellate Practice
On motion or on its own, an appellate court may direct the parties’ attorneys to appear before the court or its designee for a prehearing conference to consider simplification of the issues and other matters that may aid in the disposition of the proceeding. The court must issue an order that recites the matters considered and limits the issues to those not disposed of by admissions or agreement. The order controls the subsequent course of the proceeding, unless modified to prevent manifest injustice.
