RAP FORM 22: NOTICE TO APPELLANT RE: STATEMENT OF ADDITIONAL GROUNDS FOR REVIEW

COURT OF APPEALS DIVISION ___ OF THE STATE OF WASHINGTON

Re: Case No. ______________________________

Dear Appellant:

Your attorney has filed a proof of service indicating that you were mailed a copy of the opening brief in your appeal. If, after reviewing that brief, you believe there are additional grounds for review that were not included in your lawyer’s brief, you may list those grounds in a Statement of Additional Grounds for Review. RAP 10.10.

Because the Statement of Additional Grounds for Review is not a brief, there is no required format and you may prepare it by hand. No citations to the record or legal authority are required, but you should sufficiently identify any alleged error so that the appellate court may consider your argument. A copy of the rule is enclosed for your reference.

Your Statement of Additional Grounds for Review must be sent to the Court within 30 days. It will be reviewed by the Court when your appeal is considered on the merits.

Very truly yours,

Clerk/Administrator
