(3)  The clerk, upon the filing of a certified copy of a notice of appeal or petition, shall charge and collect a service charge of $250 for each case docketed, and for copying, certifying or furnishing opinions, records, papers or other instruments and for other services the same service charges as provided in s. 28.24. The State of Florida or its agencies, when appearing as appellant or petitioner, is exempt from the filing fee required in this subsection.

(4)  The opinions of the district court of appeal shall not be recorded, but the original as filed shall be preserved with the record in each case.

(5)  The clerk is authorized immediately after a case is disposed of, to supply the judge who tried the case and from whose order, judgment, or decree, appeal or other review is taken, a copy of all opinions, orders, or judgments filed in such case. Copies of opinions, orders, and decrees shall be furnished in all cases to each attorney of record and for publication in Florida reports to the authorized publisher without charge, and copies furnished to other law book publishers at one-half the regular statutory fee.
