RAP 17.1: SCOPE

(a) Relief Under This Title. A person may seek relief, other than a decision of the case on the merits, by motion as provided in Title 17. In a criminal appeal where the defendant is represented by counsel, the defendant may only file a motion related to a statement of additional grounds for review or the representation of counsel. Other motions submitted by a defendant who is represented by counsel will be placed in the file without action. Any such action is not subject to the provisions of rule 17.7.

(b) Motion on the Merits. A party may seek a decision on the merits by motion as provided in rule 18.14. The rules in Title 17 apply to a motion for a decision on the merits only to the extent provided in rule 18.14.

[Originally effective July 1, 1976; amended effective September 1, 1984; September 1, 2014.]
