ITEM 11 | FILING MOTIONS
Any motion filed while your appeal is pending must specify the reason for the motion, the relief being sought from the Court, and the legal grounds for the relief. If your motion is being filed in paper, an original and 3 copies must be filed if the motion requires single judge action. See 11th Cir. R. 27-1(d). The motion must be made in writing and must be served on all parties.
All motions filed with the Court should contain a Certificate of Interested Persons as described in FRAP 26.1 and the accompanying 11th Circuit Rules. (See forms at the end of this document.)
A motion will be treated as an emergency only when: 1) the motion will be moot unless a ruling is obtained within 7 days; AND 2) if the order sought to be reviewed is a district court order or action, the motion is being filed within 7 days of the filing of the district court order or action sought to be reviewed. If the motion does not meet these two criteria, it may be treated as “time sensitive.” 11th Cir. R. 27-1(b).
Any motion for reconsideration or clarification of an order of the Court must be filed within 21 days from the file date of the order. No additional time is allowed for mailing.
