Motion to Augment Clerk's Transcript to include missing documents in limited civil appeal

Asked over 1 year ago - Los Angeles, CA

If documents are listed as Missing from the Clerk's Transcript (i.e. a Certificate is included in Clerk's Transcript that clerk was unable to locate said documents in the file), but you have a conformed copy of the documents, and you file a Motion to Augment the Clerk's Transcript, will the Appellate Court/Division usually grant the Motion to Augment as to the missing documents. Why or why not? Citations would be helpful. This is regarding a limited civil appeal being heard by the Appellate Division.

Additional information

It seems that generally speaking, under CRC 8.841(a), Motions to Augment are always granted in the interest of justice so as to ensure an accurate record on appeal.
