(b)
Citation of Supplemental Authority.
When
pertinent and significant authority comes to the attention of a
party after the party's brief has been filed or after oral argument
but before the decision, a party shall promptly file notice with
the Clerk, and serve all other parties. In no case will
supplemental authority-pertinent and significant or otherwise-
be accepted by the Clerk for filing fewer than 7 days preceding
a scheduled oral argument, without leave from the Court. The
notice shall set forth the citation(s) to the authority or include a
copy of the supplemental authority if it is not readily available
in a reporter system. The notice shall refer to the page of the
brief or to a point argued orally to which each citation pertains,
and shall state without argument the reasons for the
supplemental citation(s). Any response shall be made
promptly and shall be similarly limited.
