Oral Argument Policy Updated

The Second District has expanded the cases that are provisionally set for oral argument upon request.  Oral argument in most appeals and original proceedings will be set upon a timely request that complies with Florida Rule of Appellate Procedure 9.320.  An extraordinary motion is no longer required for specified cases.  Once a case is set, the panel upon review may cancel the oral argument and decide the case based on the written filings. The court’s policy is stated in the revised internal operating procedures.  The court will review the revised policy in six months.
