Rule 3: Requirement of Counsel to Abridge the Record on Appeal.


In determining the content of the record and the scope of the transcript of evidence and proceedings in the trial court, as provided in T.R.A.P. 24(a) and 24(b), counsel for appellant and appellee are required to abridge the record so that only such part of the pleadings, testimony and other parts of the record which bear upon or affect the rights of the parties on the issues that are involved on the appeal, are included in the record. In the discretion of the Supreme Court, costs accruing for failure of counsel to comply with this rule will be adjudged against the party whose counsel is in default.
