    The proposed amendments would make the Table of Citations an optional component of all appellate briefs.
    The Table of Citations is no longer needed to help a reader navigate to a particular cited source because most briefs are filed in electronic format with searchable text. Cumulatively, appellate litigants spend an unjustifiable amount of time and resources creating Tables of Citations. These proposed amendments would end the wasteful practice.

    Filed: January 10, 2023

    Would amend ARCAP, the appellate rules in the Rules of Criminal Procedure, and the appellate rules in the Rules of Procedure for the Juvenile Court to eliminate the requirement that appellate briefs include a table of authorities.
