Arizona Rules of Civil Appellate Procedure | Rule 22 Motions to Reconsider

(a) Necessity. The filing of a motion for reconsideration in the Court of Appeals is not a prerequisite to the filing of a petition for review pursuant to Rule 23.

(b) Time for Filing; Response. Any party desiring reconsideration of a decision of an appellate court may file a motion for reconsideration in the appellate court within fifteen days after the filing of a decision by the appellate court. The motion shall not be amended except by leave of court.
No response to a motion for reconsideration will be filed unless requested by the Court, but a motion for reconsideration will not be granted in the absence of such a request.

(c) Form, Length and Contents. A motion for reconsideration shall be directed solely to discussion of those specific points or matters in which it is claimed the appellate court erred in determination of facts or law. It shall be bound or fastened and shall comply with Rule 6(c). Except by permission of the court (1) a motion for reconsideration or a response prepared in a proportionately spaced typeface may not exceed 3500 words and may not have an average of more than 280 words per page, including footnotes and quotations; (2) a motion for reconsideration or a response prepared in a monospaced typeface may not exceed 10 pages and may not have an average of more than 350 words per page including footnotes and quotations; and (3) a handwritten motion for reconsideration may not exceed 12 pages.
