(a) Dismissal in the District Court.
Before an appeal has been docketed by the circuit clerk, the
district court may dismiss the appeal on the filing of a
stipulation signed by all parties or on the appellant’s motion
with notice to all parties.
(b) Dismissal in the Court of Appeals.
The circuit clerk may dismiss a docketed appeal if the parties
file a signed dismissal agreement specifying how costs are to
be paid and pay any fees that are due. But no mandate or other
process may issue without a court order. An appeal may be
dismissed on the appellant’s motion on terms agreed to by the
parties or fixed by the court.
