The Third Circuit has extended deadlines for Virgin Island cases again in light of the recent hurricane devastation. The court’s announcement:
Deadlines for non-emergency filings in Virgin Islands cases are further extended to Friday, October 20, 2017. Counsel in emergency or expedited cases should contact the Clerk’s Office as soon as possible regarding scheduling. Notices of appeal must be filed in the district court. A district court may enter an order or make an announcement regarding the inaccessibility of a district clerk’s office that would impact the computation of time for filing notices of appeal. Fed. R. App. P. 26(a)(3). Motions for extension of time to file a notice of appeal must be made in the district court. Fed. R. App. P. 4.
UPDATE2: also on September 29 the Virgin Island courts (i.e. the equivalent of state courts) issued this announcement regarding deadline extensions and court operations.
