Rule 71. Application for summons; issuance
Any party to a controversy of a civil nature which in his opinion may be
adjusted without resort to court action may apply to a judge or clerk of the
Territorial Court for the issuance of a summons for conciliation.
If it shall seem to the judge that such controversy would lend itself to
conciliation, he shall cause a summons for conciliation to be served upon the
adverse party directing him to appear for an informal hearing on a day certain,
not less than three days after the issuance of the summons, except that for
good cause shown, the judge may direct the adverse party to appear in a
shorter time.--Amended May 28, 1957; May 27, 1965.
