Supreme Court of Indiana
May 10, 2017
In re Matter of Documents Tendered for Filing that Fail to Comply with Certain Rules of Appellate Procedure
STANDING ORDER REGARDING "NOTICE OF DEFECT"
FOR CERTAIN DEFECTIVE DOCUMENTS
Loretta H. Rush Chief Justice.
November 2, 2006 and as periodically revised,  this Court, in
collaboration with the Court of Appeals and Tax Court, has
issued standing orders authorizing the Clerk of the Indiana
Supreme Court, Court of Appeals, and Tax Court
("Clerk") to issue a "Notice of Defect"
instead of immediately rejecting documents that are timely
tendered for filing but do not comply with certain
requirements of the Indiana Rules of Appellate Procedure.
Today we revise the standing order to reflect subsequent
amendments made to the Indiana Rules of Appellate Procedure.
Our February 22, 2012 order is now superseded and is no
longer in effect.
order applies to a document that is timely tendered for
filing but does not comply with the Indiana Rules of
