FRAP 36. Entry of Judgment; Notice


(a) Entry.


A judgment is entered when it is noted on the docket. The clerk must prepare, sign, and enter the judgment:


(1) after receiving the court's opinion -- but if settlement of the judgment's form is required, after final settlement; or


(2) if a judgment is rendered without an opinion, as the court instructs.


(b) Notice.


On the date when judgment is entered, the clerk must serve on all parties a copy of the opinion -- or the judgment, if no opinion was written -- and a notice of the date when the judgment was entered.
