TITLE XVI. — POSTTRIAL PROCEEDINGS

Rule 160. Harmless Error

No error in either the admission or exclusion of evidence, and no error or defect in any ruling or order or in anything done or omitted by the Court or by any of the parties, is ground for granting a new trial or for vacating, modifying, or otherwise disturbing a decision or order, unless refusal to take such action appears to the Court inconsistent with substantial justice. The Court at every stage of a case will disregard any error or defect which does not affect the substantial rights of the parties.

Rule 161. Motion for Reconsideration of Findings or Opinion

Any motion for reconsideration of an opinion or findings of fact, with or without a new or further trial, shall be filed within 30 days after a written opinion or the pages of the transcript that contain findings of fact or opinion stated orally pursuant to Rule 152 (or a written summary thereof) have been served, unless the Court shall otherwise permit.

Rule 162. Motion to Vacate or Revise Decision

Any motion to vacate or revise a decision, with or without a new or further trial, shall be filed within 30 days after the decision has been entered, unless the Court shall otherwise permit.

Rule 163. No Joinder of Motions Under Rules 161 and 162

Motions under Rules 161 and 162 shall be made separately from each other and not joined to or made part of any other motion.
