(a) Motion for expedited decision. After all briefs in an appeal have been filed, a party may move for an expedited decision without a written opinion. The motion must be in the form prescribed by Rule 27 and must describe: the nature of the case, the issues presented, and any special reasons the parties may have for an expedited decision.
(b) Cases that qualify for expedited decision. The following are matters that the court may consider for expedited decision without opinion:
(1) appeals where all parties stipulate to an expedited decision;
(2) appeals involving uncomplicated factual issues based primarily on documents;
(3) summary judgments;
(4) dismissals for failure to state a claim;
(5) dismissals for lack of personal or subject matter jurisdiction; and
(6) judgments or orders based on uncomplicated issues of law.
(c) Procedure for expedited decision. If a motion for expedited decision is granted, the appeal will be given an expedited setting for oral argument within 45 to 60 days from the date of the order granting the motion. Within two days after submission of the appeal, the court will conference, decide the case, and issue a written order which need not be accompanied by an opinion. The judgment of the court will be entered when the clerk dockets the order.
(d) Effect as precedent. Appeals decided under paragraph (e)will not stand as precedent but will otherwise have the same force and effect as other court decisions.
(e) Issuing a written opinion. If the court decides to issue a written opinion, the time limitation in paragraph (c) will not apply and the parties will be so notified.
