FL – Terry Trussell Appeal 1D14-5024 – DCA First Circuit

Someone has filed an ‘Appeal‘ with the Florida District Court of Appeal, First Circuit. It is not clear what order is being appealed and why the Court of Appeals has any relevance at this time in the proceedings. Terry just received his arraignment… It is also not clear who filed this motion. Was it Terry?

Case Number:  1D14-5024

Final Criminal Other Notice from Dixie County
Terry George Trussell  vs.  State of Florida

Lower Tribunal Case(s): 14-201 CF

The docket shows a myriad of fails, starting with a failure to outline what order was appealed

Upon the Court’s own motion, appellant is directed to file, within 10 days from the date of this order, an amended notice of appeal which states the date of rendition of the order to be reviewed. A copy of Florida Rule of Appellate Procedure 9.020(i), which defines “rendition,” and a sample form of an amended notice of appeal are attached to appellant’s copy of this order. The amended notice of appeal shall be filed with this Court, and not the lower tribunal. The failure of appellant to timely comply with this order could result in the imposition of sanctions, including dismissal of the appeal without further opportunity to be heard. Florida Rule of Appellate Procedure 9.410.

Time for the appellant to educate himself with the proper rules..

Upon the Court’s own motion, appellant is directed to file within 10 days from the date of this order an amended notice of appeal which contains a proper certificate of service showing service on Pamela Jo Bondi, Attorney General.  A copy of Florida Rule of Appellate Procedure 9.420, which defines certificate of service, and a sample form for an amended notice of appeal are attached to appellant’s copy of this order.

And follow them

Upon the Court’s own motion, appellant is directed to file within 10 days from the date of this order an amended notice of appeal which contains an original signature OF APPELLANT as required by Florida Rules of Judicial Administration 2.515(a) – (c).

And pay or file the proper forms

Appellant has filed a notice of appeal in the lower tribunal without the entry of an order of insolvency or deposit of the statutory filing fee.  Accordingly, appellant shall, within 30 days from the date of this order, either file a certified copy of the lower tribunal’s order of insolvency for appellate purposes as required by Florida Rule of Appellate Procedure 9.430 or pay to the clerk of this Court the sum of $300.00 as the appellate filing fee required by the applicable rule of procedure and Section 35.22(3), Florida Statutes (2013).

This appeal shall not proceed until the order of insolvency is filed or the fee is paid.  If at the end of 30 days appellant has neither paid the fee nor secured an order of indigency, appellant shall show cause within 10 days thereafter why this appeal should not be dismissed.  Florida Rule of Appellate Procedure 9.410.
