8.8 - Conclusion to Oral Argument

(a) Decision of the Board

Decisions are normally not rendered on the day of oral argument.  Subsequent to oral argument, cases are processed in the standard manner.  See Chapter 1.4(d) (Board Decisions).

(b) Supplemental Briefs

The Board expects all issues to be fully briefed and argued by the conclusion of oral argument.  Parties may not file supplemental briefs after oral argument unless they are expressly solicited by the Board or warranted by emergent developments in the law or the case.

(c) Transcripts

The Board digitally records oral argument.  A transcript is prepared following oral argument and is served on the parties.
