Idaho Rules of Civil Procedure Rule 83(s). Effect of Failure to Comply With Time Limits.

The failure to physically file a notice of appeal or notice of cross-appeal with the district court within the time limits prescribed by these rules shall be jurisdictional and shall cause automatic dismissal of such appeal upon motion of any party, or upon initiative of the district court. Failure of a party to timely take any other step in the appellate process shall not be deemed jurisdictional, but may be grounds only for such other action or sanction as the district court deems appropriate, which may include dismissal of the appeal.
