Case Caption: Janelle K. Sarauw and Brigitte Berry, v. Caroline Fawkes, in her official capacity as Supervisor Of Elections, Virgin Islands Joint Board of Elections, Board of Elections, St. Thomas-St. John, and Kevin A. Rodriguez a/k/a Kevin A. Rodriquez,Case Number: S. Ct. Civ. No. 2017-0003Date: 01/04/2017Author: Per CuriamCitation: Summary:

Considering a petition to appeal from an interlocutory order of the Superior Court pursuant to title 4, section 33(c) of the Virgin Islands Code, the Supreme Court denies permission to appeal. To qualify for permissive review under section 33(c), an immediate appeal must not only materially advance the ultimate termination of the litigation, but resolve a controlling question of law as to which there is substantial ground for disagreement. Because all of the issues the petitioner attempts to raise may be resolved by application of binding precedent, the appeal does not involve a controlling question of law for which there is substantial ground for difference of opinion.
