RULES OF THE SUPREME COURT OF THE STATE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE

PROCEDURAL RULES 1 TO 34

Rule 6. Form of Cases and Appendices.

(1) Filings of cases and appendices may be prepared using a printing, duplicating or copying process capable of producing a clear letter quality black image on white paper, but shall not include ordinary carbon copies. If timely filings do not conform to this rule or are not clearly legible, the clerk of the court may require that new copies be substituted, but the filings shall not thereby be deemed untimely.

        (2) Each filing of a case in a mandatory appeal shall be upon good quality, nonclinging paper 8 by 11 inches in size, but the mandatory notice of appeal need not be in pamphlet form, need not have covers, and need not be bound along the left margin.

Each filing of a case and appendix in any case other than a mandatory appeal shall be in pamphlet form upon good quality, nonclinging paper 8 by 11 inches in size, with front and back covers of durable quality. Each shall have a minimum margin of one inch on the binding side and shall be firmly bound along the left margin. Any metal or plastic spines, fasteners, or staples shall be flush with the covers and shall be covered by tape. The covers shall be flush with the pages of the case. The court will not accept any other method of binding unless prior approval has been obtained from the clerk of the supreme court.

        (3) The front cover of the filing of a case and of the appendix, if the appendix is separately produced, shall contain: (1) The name of this court; (2) The docket number, after one has been assigned; (3) The title of the case; (4) The nature of the proceeding in this court, e.g., appeal by petition; and (5) The names and addresses of counsel for the party filing the case. See form in appendix to these rules.

        (4) Whenever the pertinent text of constitutions, statutes, ordinances, rules, regulations, insurance policies, contracts or other documents is to be set forth in an appendix, it need not be typewritten, but may be produced by an easily readable duplicating or dry copying process.

       (5) Each request for findings of fact and rulings of law set forth in a notice of appeal or appendix shall indicate on the margin whether they have been "granted," "denied" or "not ruled upon" by the master or the court.
