(a) Briefs. Amici Curiae attorneys may file briefs with the permission of the Court. The motion for permission should state the reasons why such a brief is thought to be necessary. If the amicus brief supports the appellant's position or is neutral, it is due at the same time as the appellant's brief; if it supports the appellee's position, it is due at the same time as the appellee's brief.

(b) Oral arguments. Amici Curiae attorneys will not be permitted to participate in oral arguments.

(c) Petitions for rehearing. Amici Curiae attorneys will not be permitted to file a petition for rehearing in their own names and may participate only by first securing permission of the regular attorneys or of the Court to join in the motion or brief.
