How do I supplement the Record on Appeal?


A party may supplement the Record on Appeal if there is a material omission or inaccuracy in the Record.

Pursuant to Illinois Supreme Court Rule 329, a Supplemental Record on Appeal may be prepared by stipulation of the parties or by order of the trial court, either before or after the Record is transmitted, or by order of the reviewing court.

Pursuant to Appellate Court Rule 19 (1st District), the trial court retains jurisdiction regarding supplemental record preparation. Therefore, motions requesting the preparation of a supplemental record should be filed in the first instance in the trial court.

If you are seeking to have a Supplemental Record on Appeal prepared in a civil appeal, you will need to submit the following documents individually through the Electronic Appeals Filings submission portal:
 
  • Request for Preparation of Supplemental Record on Appeal form (CCA0023.pdf);
  • The stipulation signed by the parties OR a court order with the judge's signature (not just the 'entered' stamp); and
  • The documents listed in the stipulation or court order.

Pursuant to Illinois Supreme Court Rule 324, the appellant may also submit any filings that carry a Clerk of the Circuit Court filing stamp with a new Notice of Filing for the preparation of a Supplemental Record on Appeal. The following documents must be individually submitted through the Electronic Appeals Filings submission portal.

  • Request for Preparation of Supplemental Record on Appeal form (CCA0023.pdf);
  • The new Notice of Filing identifying the documents being submitted; and
  • Documents carrying legible Clerk of the Circuit Court filing stamps.
