Idaho Criminal Rule 54.9. Settlement of Transcript.

Upon receipt of the transcript of the testimony and proceedings, the clerk of the trial court shall mail or deliver a notice of lodging of the transcript to all attorneys of record, or parties appearing in person. The original of the transcript shall be retained by the clerk of the trial court, but the notice shall advise the plaintiff and defendant that they may pick up a copy of the transcript at the clerk's office and that the parties have twenty-one (21) days from the date of notice in which to file any objections to the content thereof. If there are multiple defendants appealing, and the court has not ordered separate transcripts for each defendant and the defendants have not ordered separate transcripts, they shall determine by agreement the manner and time of use of the transcript by each party, or failing such agreement, such determination shall be made by the trial court upon application of any party. Any party may file a written objection to the content of the transcript within twenty-one (21) days from the date of mailing of the notice to the parties that the transcript has been lodged with the trial court. Upon failure of the parties to file any objection with such time period, the transcript shall be deemed settled. Any objection made to a trial transcript shall be heard and determined by the trial court in the same manner as a motion. The determination by the trial court of any objection to the transcript shall be deemed a settlement of the transcript for all purposes.
