(a) Time and form of order determining motion, generally. An order determining a motion relating to a provisional remedy shall be made within
twenty days, and an order determining any other motion shall be made within sixty
days, after the motion is submitted for decision. The order shall be in writing and shall be the same in form whether made by a court
or a judge out of court. An order determining a motion made upon supporting papers shall be signed with the
judge's signature or initials by the judge who made it, state the court of which he
or she is a judge and the place and date of the signature, recite the papers used
on the motion, and give the determination or direction in such detail as the judge
deems proper. Except in a town or village court or where otherwise provided by law, upon the request
of any party, an order or ruling made by a judge, whether upon written or oral application
or sua sponte, shall be reduced to writing or otherwise recorded.
(b) Signature on appellate court order. An order of an appellate court shall be signed by a judge thereof except that, upon
written authorization by the presiding judge, it may be signed by the clerk of the
court or, in his absence or disability, by a deputy clerk.
