Rule 11.2 Automatic Assignment of Certain Cases to the Accelerated Docket

A. Appeals arising out of the following cases will be automatically assigned to the Accelerated Docket upon the filing of the Notice of Intent to Appeal and Designation of Record.

(1) Certification and reverse certification appeals for juvenile offenders and Youthful Offenders;

(2) Order granting or denying imposition of Adult Sentence under Youthful Offender Act;

(3) Adjudication as Delinquent; and

(4) Actions brought pursuant to Section 1089.1 to 1089.7 of Title 22 (State Appeals from Adverse Ruling of Magistrate).

Provided that no case on appeal will be assigned to the Accelerated Docket if that cause was consolidated for trial with other counts resulting in convictions for which appellate relief is sought, and those other convictions are not among those cases enumerated above. If assignment to the Accelerated Docket is desired in such a case, the procedures of Rule 11.3 should be followed with respect to all counts contained in a single case.

B. Upon the filing of the Notice of Intent to Appeal and Designation of Record under Rule 2.5, the above cases shall be assigned to the Accelerated Docket under this Section and the Clerk of this Court shall send notice of such assignment to all named parties. Either party may move within ten (10) days to have the cause removed from the Accelerated Docket. Good cause must be stated in support of the request. Failure to object within the allotted time period waives any future objections.

C. All pleadings and records required by Rule 11.5 shall be filed within the time requirements for regular appeals. See Sections I, II and III. PROVIDED HOWEVER, juvenile appeals shall be filed within the time requirements set out in Section VII and the scheduling order issued by this Court. See Rule 7.5.

D. There is no limitation on the number of issues which may be raised in cases automatically assigned to the Accelerated Docket by reason of this Section.

E. In all appeals properly assigned to the Accelerated Docket, oral argument shall be scheduled, giving each party fifteen (15) minutes to argue to the Court the propositions or issues raised in the appellant's brief. Failure to argue a proposition during oral argument does not waive consideration of that argument on appeal.
