Perhaps the most useful section of the state's shield law is AS 09.25.330, which provides in pertinent part that during the pendency of an appeal concerning an order entered upholding or denying a claim of reporter's privilege, the privilege shall remain in full force and effect. For this reason, there is little urgency on the part of the press to appeal.
Appeal from a final judgment must be filed with 42 days. A petition for a writ of review is subject to different rules and statutes. No specific time period is described for the filing of special writs, such as a writ of review, which are generally governed by provisions of Rule 43 of the Idaho Appellate Rules.
Under Rule 8-202(a), "Except as otherwise provided in this Rule or by law, the notice of appeal shall be filed within 30 days after entry of the judgment or order from which the appeal is taken." Md. R. Evid. 8-202(a) (2017).
Under 8-202(f), "'Entry' as used in this Rule occurs on the day when the clerk of the lower court enters a record on the docket of the electronic case management system, used by that court”. Md. R. App. Rev., Ct. App. & Ct. Special App. 8-202(f) (2017). See alsoWBAL-TV Division, 477 A.2d 776 (Md. 1984).
Court of Appeals
Rule 8-302 provides the parameters for petitioning for writ of certiorari.
From appeal to Court of Special Appeals. "If a notice of appeal to the Court of Special Appeals has been filed pursuant to Rule 8-201, a petition for a writ of certiorari may be filed either before or after the Court of Special Appeals has rendered a decision, but not later than 15 days after the Court of Appeals issues its mandate or 30 days after the filing of that court’s decision." Md. R. App. Rev., Ct. App. & Ct. Special App. 8-302(a) (2017).
By other party. "If a timely petition for a writ of certiorari is filed by a party, any other party may file a petition for a writ of certiorari within 15 days after the date on which the first timely petition was filed or within any applicable time otherwise prescribed by this Rule, whichever is later. Md. R. App. Rev., Ct. App. & Ct. Special App. 8-302(c) (2017).
Right of Appeal—§12-301 of the Courts and Judicial Proceedings Article provides:
"[A] party may appeal from a final judgment entered in a civil or criminal case by a circuit court. The right of appeal exists from a final judgment entered by a court in the exercise of original, special, limited, statutory jurisdiction, unless in a particular case the right of appeal is expressly denied by law." Md. Code. Ann., Cts. & Jud. Proc. § 12-301 (2017).
A notice of appeal from an order or decision of a Vermont court must be filed within 30 days of the date the judgment or order was entered, except an appeal by the state in a criminal case must be taken within seven business days of the entry of the judgment or ordered appealed from. V.R.A.P. 4(a). The notice of appeal is filed with the clerk of the superior court which issued the judgment or order which is being appealed.
Generally, if a written notice of judgment or order appealed from is given within 21 days of the judgment or order, an appeal must be initiated within 45 days of the entry of the judgment or order. See Wis. Stat. § 808.04(1). If no written notice is given, an appeal must be initiated within 90 days of entry. Id.
