Idaho Rules of Civil Procedure Rule 83(o). 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 transcript to all attorneys of record, or parties appearing in person. The original of the transcripts shall be retained by the clerk of the 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 21 days from the date of the notice in which to file any objections to the transcript; and the notice shall further advise the appellant to pay the balance of the fees for the preparation of the transcript, if any, before the copy of the transcript will be delivered to the appellant. Where there are multiple parties, 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 by any party. Any party may object to the content of the transcript within 21 days from the date of mailing of the notice to the parties that the transcripts have been lodged with the court. Upon failure of the parties to file any objection within 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.
