In the Matter of the Amendment of the Rules of Appellate Procedure: Wis. Stat. (Rule) 809.62, Petition For Review




No. 93-17


On November 16, 1993, the court held a public hearing on the advisability of amending the rules of appellate procedure to require all parties in a petition for review filed in the Supreme Court to identify issues presented to the court in the requested review proceeding, including issues raised in the Court of Appeals but not decided by that court. The proposed amendment would require that a response to a petition for review contain a statement of issues the respondent wants considered in the review other than the issues identified by the petitioner and would prohibit all parties from raising or arguing an issue not set forth in the petition for review or the response, unless the court orders otherwise.

The court has considered the appearances at that hearing and materials submitted in response to the notice of hearing and has determined that no further action in this matter need be taken at this time.

IT IS ORDERED that no further action shall be taken in this matter at this time and the proceeding is closed.

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that notice of the court's action in this proceeding shall be given by a single publication of a copy of this order in the official state newspapers and in an official publication of the State Bar of Wisconsin.

Dated at Madison, Wisconsin, this 25th day of September, 2000.







Cornelia G. Clark, Clerk of Court
