BRIEFING SCHEDULE CHART
FOR PARTIES APPEALING DECISIONS OF THE TITLE BOARD
TO THE COLORADO SUPREME COURT
IN THE 2014 ELECTION CYCLE

Due to the short timelines involved in the title-setting process, the court employs an abbreviated, simultaneous briefing schedule, deadlines for which depend on when the Petition for Review of Final Action of Ballot Title Setting Board is filed. There will be no oral argument unless ordered by the court. Because of the short timelines involved in Title Board appeals, motions for extensions of time will rarely if ever be granted.

Date petition for review filed Date simultaneous opening briefs due Date simultaneous answer briefs due
On or before Wednesday, April 23, 2014 20 days after petition for review is filed 20 days after last timely opening brief is filed
Between Thursday, April 24, and Friday, May 9, 2014 14 days after petition for review is filed 14 days after last timely opening brief is filed
On or after Monday, May 12, 2014 5 days after petition for review is filed 5 days after last timely opening brief is filed


Once all of the briefs in the appeal have been filed, the case is distributed to the Justices for their consideration at the next conference, which generally falls on a Thursday. The case is then disposed of promptly.
