2. A petitioner shall submit a Petition on a form provided by the Court. The petition shall set forth the name of the petitioner(s), the name of the respondent(s), a brief summary of the case and the relief desired. A petitioner must have a direct and particular interest in the issue.

With the concurrence of three judges, the Court may (a) deny the petition, (b) grant the petition, (c) require written arguments from both sides by a deadline set in the order, (d) set a time for oral arguments, including the amount of time for each side to deliver its case or (e) some combination of the above or any other action the Court deems appropriate.
