2014 California Rules of Court

Rule 8.163. Presumption from the record

The reviewing court will presume that the record in an appeal includes all matters material to deciding the issues raised. If the appeal proceeds without a reporter's transcript, this presumption applies only if the claimed error appears on the face of the record.

Rule 8.163 amended and renumbered effective January 1, 2007; repealed and adopted as rule 52 effective January 1, 2005.

Advisory Committee Comment

The intent of rule 8.163 is explained in the case law. (See, e.g., Dumas v. Stark (1961) 56 Cal.2d 673, 674.)
