WELCH V. VELTEN
APPEALS – Time for Filing Cross-Appeal suspended pending motion to dismiss
VACATING AND REMANDING
Supremes held that a party’s motion to dismiss an opponent’s appeal pursuant to CR 76.34(6) suspends the running of time within which that party may file a notice of cross-appeal, pending a ruling on the motion to dismiss. Court held that any ambiguity in the rule as to the suspension of time should be resolved in favor of having appeals and cross-appeals decided on their merits.
