SUPREME COURT
OF THE
COMMONWEALTH OF THE NORTHERN MARIANA ISLANDS

2019 APPELLATE ORAL ARGUMENT SESSIONS

SUPREME COURT NO. 2018-ADM-0006-MSC

ORDER

The 2019 appellate oral argument sessions shall be as follows:


First Quarter: January 28 - February 8, 2019
Second Quarter: April 29 - May 10, 2019
Third Quarter: September 3 - 13, 2019
Fourth Quarter: November 5 - 15, 2019




 
Certain cases may be designated for a hearing on Rota, Tinian, or Saipan in each quarter. Hearings on Rota and Tinian may be scheduled outside the designated oral argument sessions. To ensure that cases are heard and disposed of at the earliest possible dates, the Court will only grant motions to continue oral argument in cases where counsel's unavailability on the scheduled hearing date is due to illness, death in the family, or upon showing of other good cause. This Order does not supersede a panel's discretion to address a matter and issue a decision without oral argument as provided for under NMI Sup. Ct. R. 34, or to hold a hearing for an emergency motion under NMI Sup. Ct. R. 27-1.
 


SO ORDERED this 19th day of October, 2018.
