Title 5, Chapter 6, Section 44
(a) Whenever two or more persons are defendants or plaintiffs in an
action, and a judgment, verdict, or decree has been rendered against
each of them, jointly or severally, or where two or more cases are
tried together, the plaintiffs or defendants, as the case may be,
shall be entitled, but not required, to file joint appeals, motions
for new trial, motions in arrest, motions to set aside, and motions
for judgment notwithstanding the verdict, without regard to whether
the parties have a joint interest, or whether the cases were merely
consolidated for purposes of trial, or whether the cases were simply
tried together without an order of consolidation.
(b) Where joint appeals are filed, the appealing parties may
nevertheless be entitled, but not required, to file separate
enumerations of error in the appellate court.
(c) When separate appeals, motions for new trial, or motions for
judgment notwithstanding the verdict are filed, only one transcript
of evidence and proceedings (where required) and only one record
need be prepared, filed, or transmitted to the appellate court (as
the case may be).
(d) In such cases, the court shall by order specify the division of
costs between the parties.
(e) This Code section shall apply to both civil and criminal cases.
