Case Caption: Wilbert Williams, M.D., Appellant/Petitioner vs. Government of the Virgin Islands, Appellee/Respondent.Case Number: S.Ct. Civ. No.: 2009-057Date: 02/28/2011Author: Swan, Ive Arlington Citation: Summary:

In addressing the applicability of Superior Court Rule 15(a)'s thirty-day requirement for filing a petition for writ of review, the Court holds that a party is not an "aggrieved party" under Rule 15(a) during the effective period of a temporary restraining order or a preliminary injunction, which enjoins a judicial or quasi-judicial body from enforcing that body's decision against a party. The Court further holds that the time period during which the temporary restraining order or preliminary injunction is in effect will be excluded from the computation of time toward the thirty-day requirement, which limits the time for petitioning the court for a writ of review under Rule 15(a).
