Request for urgent consideration

To speed up the proceedings, a party may request the district court to order urgent consideration of the matter. A matter may be ordered to be considered urgently only in exceptional cases, when there are very important reasons to do so. When considering whether a request for urgent consideration is to be accepted, the court shall take account of the duration of the judicial proceedings so far, the nature of the matter and its significance to the party. A party may request urgent consideration by submitting to the court a written request, where he or she presents the circumstances on which the request for urgent consideration is based. The decision is made by a judge of the district court. If a request for urgent consideration is accepted, the district court must consider the matter without undue delay before other matters.
