The Supreme Court, to promote the orderly administration of justice may, on its own initiative, upon certification by the Court of Appeals, or on motion of a party, transfer a case from the Court of Appeals to the Supreme Court or from one division to another division of the Court of Appeals. The Court of Appeals, on its own initiative or on motion of a party, may transfer a case from one division to another division pursuant to CAR 21(a). A party should not file a motion to transfer until the record has been perfected and all briefs have been filed in the Court of Appeals.
