RAP 3.4: TITLE OF ASE AND DESIGNATION OF PARTIES

The title of a case in the appellate court is the same as in the trial court except that the party seeking review by appeal is called an "appellant," the party seeking review by discretionary review is called a "petitioner," and an adverse party on review is called a "respondent."

Upon motion of a party or on the court's own motion, and after notice to the parties, the Supreme Court or the Court of Appeals may change the title of a case by order in said case.
