RULE 6 HEARING (a) Contested Proceedings. If a notice of contest is timely filed, the Supreme Court will set the date for the hearing with oral argument. Oral argument will be governed by Title 11 of the Rules of Appellate Procedure. (b) Uncontested Proceedings. If a notice of contest has not been filed, oral argument will not be held unless requested by the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court will nevertheless notify the parties of the date set for the hearing without oral argument. Comment Section (a). Normally the court will hear oral argument only in contested proceedings. The court will set the date for oral argument at the same time it sets the briefing schedule. RAP Title 11 governs oral argument. Section (b). The court is required to hold a hearing in order to impose discipline or to retire a judge. Const. art. 4, subsection 31 (amend. 71). If a proceeding is uncontested, the court will set a date for considering the commission recommendation, but it will not ordinarily schedule time for oral argument. [Effective May 14, 1982]
