the first time, will require that a reproduced printed record be filed in certain civil
appeals. With the exception of appeals from the Town & Village /Justice Courts, all
civil appeals where all parties are represented by counsel will be required to file four
reproduced printed copies of the record on appeal (22 NYCRR 731.7 [b][2]). I An
additional copy of the record and briefs must be filed digitally on the court’s website.
Prior registration on the website will be required.

A full copy of the rules is attached and can also be found, with all of our forms
and procedures, on the court’s website.
