Advisory Committee Comment
Subdivision (a)(2). A respondent, other than a respondent who has filed a notice of cross-appeal, who files a respondent's brief may be required to pay a filing fee under Government Code sectionsif the respondent's brief is the first document filed in the appellate proceeding in the Court of Appeal by that party. See rule .
Subdivision (b). After the Supreme Court remands or transfers a cause to the Court of Appeal for further proceedings (i.e., under rulesor ), the parties are permitted to file supplemental briefs. The first 15-day briefing period begins on the day of finality (under rule ) of the Supreme Court decision remanding or order transferring the cause to the Court of Appeal. The rule specifies that "any party" may file a supplemental opening brief, and if such a brief is filed, "any opposing party" may file a supplemental responding brief. In this context the phrase "any party" is intended to mean any or all parties. Such a decision or order of transfer to the Court of Appeal thus triggers, first, a 15-day period in which any or all parties may file supplemental opening briefs and, second-if any party files such a brief-an additional 15-day period in which any opposing party may file a supplemental responding brief.
Subdivision (c)(1). The time within which a reply brief "could have been filed under rule" includes any authorized extension of the deadline specified in rule 8.212.
