permitted by law, be substituted as a party on motion by such
person. Any party or representative who becomes aware of the
appellant's death shall notify the Court of the death of an
appellant and proceedings will then be as the Court directs.
(b) Substitution for Other Causes.
If substitution of
a party in the Court is necessary for any reason other than
death, the Court may order substitution on its own initiative or
on a party's motion.
(c) Death or Separation from Office of Public
Officer.
When a public officer is a party in an official capacity
and during the proceedings dies, resigns, or otherwise ceases to
hold office, the proceedings are not stopped and the public
officer's successor is automatically substituted as a party.
Proceedings following the substitution will be in the name of
the substituted party, but any misnomer not affecting the
substantial rights of the parties will be disregarded.
