Calendar for the Supreme Court, the High Court and Traditional Rights Court

To inform counsel and litigants, the High Court has attached its calendar.  The court will endeavor to update the calendar at least weekly.  The date of the first entry reflects the date the court updated the calendar.  However, the court does not take responsibility to the accuracy and completeness of the calendar.  See the site Disclaimer page.

In the event of discrepancies between the calendar and court orders, be they in writing or oral, the court’s order controls.

Counsel and litigants are advised to check with the Clerk of the Courts to confirm the accuracy of the calendar’s entries and for any changes or updates prior to relying on them.  An error in the calendar will not excuse the failure to appear as ordered by the court.

For more information on the calendar, please contact the Clerk of the Courts by mail, telephone, fax, or email at the following address: Clerk of the Courts, Republic of the Marshall Islands Judiciary, P.O. Box B, Majuro, MH 96960, Marshall Islands, phone 692-625-3201/3297, and email Marshall.Islands.Judiciary@gmail.com.
