Rule 65. Entry of judgment
Judgment shall be entered at the time of entry of findings by the judge
unless stayed. Within five (5) days after entry of judgment, the judge may,
upon a showing that a substantial question of law and/or fact is involved,
grant a party leave to file a motion for a new trial. The motion shall be
submitted no later than ten (10) days after leave is granted.--Amended May 28,

Where Small Claims Division of Territorial Court entered default judgment
against defendant, defendant's subsequent Motion for Reconsideration and New
Trial was denied, as it was filed after expiration of two-day period following
entry of judgment when such motions are allowed, and no leave of Court was
obtained to file motion. Deliver It, Inc. v. Mitchell, Terr. Ct. St. T. and St.
J. 1992, 28 V.I. 25.
