SUPREME COURT NO. 2021-ADM-0016-MSC

ORDER

The 2022 appellate oral argument sessions shall be as follows:

First Quarter:          January 31 – February 11, 2022
Second Quarter:      April 25 – May 6, 2022
Third Quarter:         August 15 – 26, 2022
Fourth Quarter:       October 17 – 28, 2022

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 SUP. CT. R. 34, or to hold a hearing for an emergency motion under NMI SUP. CT. R. 27-1.SO ORDERED this 14th day of October, 2021.
