2020 ORAL ARGUMENT CALENDAR

SUPREME COURT NO. 2019-ADM-0016-MSC
_______________________________________

ORDER

The 2020 oral argument calendar shall be as follows:
First Quarter: February 3 - 14, 2020
Second Quarter: April 20 - May 1, 2020
Third Quarter: August 17 - 28, 2020
Fourth Quarter: October 19 - 30, 2020




 
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 the cases are heard and disposed of at the earliest possible date, 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 Supreme Court Rule 34, or to hold a hearing for an emergency motion under NMI Supreme Court Rule 27-1.
 


SO ORDERED this 18th day of September, 2019.
