(Appeal/Evidence Retention)

 “Superior Court clerks' offices are responsible for maintaining exhibits posttrial unless a clerk's office satisfies a judge that there is good cause to believe retention would be impracticable.  Impracticability includes, but is not limited to, whether transfer is necessary for exhibit preservation. If there is good cause to believe retention in a clerk's office would be impracticable, then a judge may order the exhibits transferred.”
