Request for urgent consideration

To speed up the proceedings, a party may request the district court to order a matter to be considered urgently. In the written request, the party must present the circumstances on which the request for urgent consideration is based. A matter may be ordered to be considered urgently in exceptional cases, when there are very important reasons to do so. The decision to order urgent consideration is made with regard to, among other circumstances, the duration of the judicial proceedings so far, the nature of the matter and its significance to the party. In general, the decision is made by the chief judge of the district court. If a request for urgent consideration is accepted, the district court must decide the matter without undue delay before other matters.
