Why did I receive a copy of the Index from the Clerk after the Notice of Appeal was filed?

Both sides to an appeal receive a copy of the Index of the Clerk after a Notice of Appeal is filed. This Index identifies all of the papers that were filed in the Superior Court. The papers are usually indexed chronologically. That is, the earliest filed paper is listed as No. 1 and the last paper filed is listed as the last number in the index. The Index is used to identify the specific paper for the purposes of informing the Court of Appeals which pleading or paper you are referring to in your brief. For example, if the complaint is indexed item No. 1, then when you refer to the complaint in your brief you should indicate that it can be found at Index No. 1.
