Rule 5. Stay of Appellate Proceedings
(1) On its own initiative or on a party’s motion, the Court may stay its proceedings when—
(B) a pro bono representation program, operating under a grant or contract made under the authority first provided in Public Law No. 102–229, is conducting case evaluation; or
(b) Effect of Stay. Unless and until the Court grants a motion under this rule, such a motion does not suspend proceedings or interrupt preexisting filing schedules. When a stay expires, the preexisting filing schedule resumes at the point at which it was stayed.
(c) Continuation of Stay. Prior to the expiration of a stay, a party may move for continuation of the stay except to the extent that the duration sought is prohibited by subsection (a)(2), above. Such motion must satisfy the requirements of Rule 27 (a), but is not governed by Rule 26 (b).
