RULE 46.1. SELF-REPRESENTATION
Any appellant, petitioner, or intervenor may be self
represented before the Court. A self-represented party shall
give the Clerk and all other parties written notice (not included
in another filing) of any change of his or her address or
telephone number. Absent such notice, the mailing of
documents to the address most recently provided by that person
will be fully effective.

Rules 25(b)(1)(B) (filing by
inmate), 28(e) (informal brief), 32(f) (identification), 33(a)
(staff conference), and 45(i) (Rules construed liberally for self-
represented appellants).
RULE 47. EXPEDITED PROCEEDINGS
(a) Motion and Order.
On a party's motion for good
cause shown, on written agreement of the parties, or on its own
initiative, the Court may order that any matter before the Court
be expedited with respect to some or all procedural steps. The
following may constitute good cause:
(1) a serious health condition that makes the death of
the appellant or petitioner imminent, as shown by a physician's
statement (including identification of the physician's licensing
authority and current license number);
(2) the advanced age (over 75 years) of the appellant or
petitioner and a state of failing health due to a nontemporary
condition, as shown by a physician's statement (including
identification of the physician's licensing authority and current
license number), such that expeditious proceedings are
necessary to avoid an injustice to the appellant or petitioner; or
(3) any other exceptional circumstances that make
expeditious proceedings necessary to avoid an injustice to the
appellant or petitioner, as shown by credible evidence.
