Plaintiff appeals from an order dismissing the cause. His brief on appeal is unaccompanied by an appendix, bound either with the brief or submitted separately. Thus plaintiff's submission of the case fails in every respect to conform
Counsel must be advised that additional burdens have been voluntarily assumed by this Court through promulgation of the recently adopted appellate rules (effective January 2, 1957; 347 Mich xiv through xxxii). A comprehensive and fully informative appendix, supplied according to the optional provisions of said Rule No 67, is imperatively required under the new appellate practice. And we cannot tolerate further the perceptibly crescent practice of some counsel to ignore the plain and understandable command (of Rules 67 and 68) that statements and counterstatements of fact be supported by specific page references.
This case, presenting as it does a patent disregard of 2 separate and purposefully interrelated sections of said Rule 67, has been selected for the purpose of warning all counsel that similar infractions will receive similar treatment. The appeal is dismissed, with costs to defendant as on granted motion to dismiss.
