Upon final determination of any appeal by the Appellate Court, there shall be no right to further review except the Supreme Court shall have the power to certify cases for its review upon petition by an aggrieved party or by the appellate panel which heard the matter. A vote of three judges of the Supreme Court shall be required to certify a case for review by the Supreme Court, except that if fewer than six judges of said court are available to consider a petition, a vote of two judges of said court shall be required to certify a case, under such other rules as the justices of said court shall establish. The procedure on appeal from the Appellate Court to the Supreme Court shall, except as otherwise provided, be in accordance with the procedure provided by rule or law for the appeal of judgments rendered by the Superior Court, unless modified by rule of the justices of the Supreme Court.
