RULE 102

(a) Effective Date. These Rules take effect on September 1, 1990. They govern all matters occurring after they take effect and also all further proceeding in matters then pending, except to the extent that in the opinion of the Court their application in a particular matter pending when these rules take effect would not be feasible or would work an injustice, in which event the former procedure applies. Part II, however, shall not apply in any appeal where a notice of intent to appeal was served prior to the effective date of these rules; if a notice was served before the effective date, the appeal shall proceed to conclusion under the Supreme Court Rules. Where the time to serve a notice of intent to appeal under Supreme Court Rules 1, ยง 1A, or 50 has expired before these Rules take effect, these Rules shall not revive the right to appeal or to petition for a writ of certiorari in a post-conviction relief case.

(b) Repealer. The Supreme Court Rules and the Miscellaneous Rules shall be repealed when these Rules become effective.
