Below will be found a list of cases which will be called for hearing at the Supreme Court session commencing August 30, 2016.

            When placed upon the final call, cases will not be continued except on motion and for urgent necessity shown.

            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.
