Time Frame Guidelines

About Time Frames

A time frame is a schedule for the presentation of evidence by all parties to the litigation of a protest before the Office of Judges. The allotted time frame changes according to the type of protest in litigation. Some time frames are concurrent - the parties develop their evidence at the same time. Some time frames are consecutive - parties develop their evidence one at a time. A time frame order may be amended or extended by the Office of Judges at the request of one or more of the parties for good cause shown.
