FRAP 26.1. Disclosure Statement


(a) Nongovernmental Corporations.


Any nongovernmental corporation that is a party to a proceeding in a court of appeals must file a statement that identifies any parent corporation and any publicly held corporation that owns 10% or more of its stock or states that there is no such corporation. The same requirement applies to a nongovernmental corporation that seeks to intervene.


(b) Organizational Victims in Criminal Cases.


In a criminal case, unless the government shows good cause, it must file a statement that identifies any organizational victim of the alleged criminal activity. If the organizational victim is a corporation, the statement must also disclose the information required by Rule 26.1(a) to the extent it can be obtained through due diligence.


(c) Bankruptcy Cases.


In a bankruptcy case, the debtor, the trustee, or, if neither is a party, the appellant must file a statement that:


(1) identifies each debtor not named in the caption; and


(2) for each debtor that is a corporation, discloses the information required by Rule 26.1(a).


(d) Time for Filing; Supplemental Filing.


The Rule 26.1 statement must:


(1) be filed with the principal brief or upon filing a motion, response, petition, or answer in the court of appeals, whichever occurs first, unless a local rule requires earlier filing;


(2) be included before the table of contents in the principal brief; and


(3) be supplemented whenever the information required under Rule 26.1 changes.


(e) Number of Copies.


If the Rule 26.1 statement is filed with the principal brief, or if a supplemental statement is filed, an original and 3 copies must be filed unless the court requires a different number by local rule or by order in a particular case.
