On its announcements page, the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit provides a link to an order stating all filing deadlines remain in effect absent a motion for an extension of time in a particular case, and the court’s CM/ECF system will remain in operation for filing all documents. In addition, all cases scheduled for oral argument, including those involving government counsel, remain scheduled for oral argument. Any motion requesting rescheduling of an argument will be transmitted to the panel assigned to hear the case.
A statement by Chief Judge Hewitt on the Court of Federal Claims’ website advises that the court will continue to hear and decide cases without interruption. Cases will be processed and argued, and judgments will be issued and enforced, as in the ordinary course of the court’s conduct of affairs. The court does not expect to issue continuances based on the lapse of appropriated funds and will adhere to schedules currently in effect.
