Arizona Appellate Briefs
The Arizona Briefs Collection consists of appellate briefs submitted to the State of Arizona Court of Appeals, Division One, and the Arizona Supreme Court, from the latter half of the 20th century to the present. Materials are drawn from the Arizona Briefs Collection maintained by the Ross-Blakley Law Library, Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law, at the Arizona State University, which includes court records and appellate briefs in print, microform, and digital form. Only appellate briefs are available through the Arizona Memory Project. Other materials may be accessed by visiting the Ross-Blakley Law Library in person.
The Arizona Briefs Collection consists primarily of appellate briefs submitted in Civil and Criminal cases, but also includes briefs submitted in Industrial Commission, Corporation Commission, and several other kinds of cases. Materials are arranged by case docket number (e.g., CA-CR 1234); consolidated cases are filed under the first listed docket number. Dates correspond to the filing date of the case and not to the date of submission of a brief to the court. Multiple briefs (e.g., opening brief, reply brief) may be associated with a one docket number and are combined into a single document. Certain types of personal information may have been removed from briefs on the Arizona Memory Project to allow for online publication. A statement of the issues presented for review, a summary of how pertinent laws affect the facts, and a statement of the relief being requested are essential elements of an appellate brief.
Additional information regarding the Arizona Briefs Collection may be found on the Ross-Blakley Law Library website.
