An official citation shall be used in the table of cases.  In addition to the requirements of App.R. 16, the appendix of appellant’s brief shall contain a copy of the judgment entry from which the appeal is taken.  If the parties to the appeal base their arguments for or against reversal of the trial court judgment on a contract in a civil or administrative action, the parties shall include a copy of that contract in their appendix.  If the contract is voluminous, the parties may file a motion with the court seeking to waive this requirement.  The motion shall state the length of the contract and/or any other ground for which the party seeks waiver.
