Rule 2:6-8 provides that "references to the stenographic transcript shall be made to the appropriate pages and lines thereof, by the following abbreviations:... 'T8-3' for transcript, page 8, line 3." The rule does not, however, set forth how one should designate the various volumes of the transcript.
Henceforth, transcript references in briefs should be designated by "T" and be numbered sequentially starting with the first transcript volume chronologically, i.e., 1T, 2T, etc. If after the designations have been made in a brief, a missing transcript volume is discovered, it should be numbered appropriately by an additional letter, e.g., 1aT.
Appellants' attorneys should list on the first page of the brief's procedural history, usually in a footnote, the dates of the various volumes of the transcript and their numbered designations.Sylvia B. Pressler
