           When placed upon the final call, cases will not be continued except on motion and for urgent necessity shown. All cases placed on the call of the Court of Appeals are subject to review for possible submission without oral argument pursuant to Neb. Ct. R. App. P. § 2-111(b)(1).  Unless a case is removed from the call by order of the court on or before December 5, 2016, the case will proceed to oral argument as set out below.

            Unless otherwise indicated, the time allotted for the presentation of arguments is limited to 10 minutes per side.  This is a maximum allowance and counsel are not required to use the full time allotted.

            During oral argument, when the timing light changes from green to amber, this means you are into your rebuttal time, which is 2 minutes, unless you have reserved a greater or lesser time.  However, whatever rebuttal time you have asked to be reserved, your only notification will be the amber light.  If you choose to continue arguing after the amber light, and the red light appears, you are completely out of time and have waived rebuttal.
