Rule 6. Time

Rule 6.03. Unaffected by Expiration of Term — Chambers Orders

(1) The period of time provided for the doing of any act or the taking of any proceeding is not affected or limited by the continued existence or expiration of a term of court. The continued existence or expiration of a term of court in no way affects the power of a court to do any act or take any proceeding in any civil action which has been pending before it.

(2) The judge or chancellor may make or direct in chambers any order, rule, judgment or decree in any civil action, except the conducting of a trial when a jury is required and of the hearing and determination by final decree of any contested divorce case unless consented to by the parties.

[As amended July 1, 1979.]
