Rule 57-A. Custody and Return of Documents and Materials Filed In Camera in Trial Courts.

   
   During the time a case is pending in the trial court, all documents and materials filed in camera with the court shall be maintained by the court.

    If an appeal is filed, the documents and materials filed in camera shall remain in the custody of the trial court pending resolution of the appeal unless the supreme court orders that they be transferred for purposes of the appeal.  Upon receipt of the mandate from the supreme court, and if no further proceedings are required, the trial court clerk shall return the documents and materials filed in camera to the individual or organization that filed them with the court.
