139. Advisement. Before submitting a record to the judge for purposes of advisement, the clerk ensures that it is complete. If the record is incomplete, the clerk notifies the parties’ lawyers of this fact so that they may complete it within the time limit set by the court.
If a party fails to file an exhibit required by the judge or fails to complete its oral or written arguments within the time limit set at the trial, the judge takes the case under advisement at the stage it has reached on the expiry of that time limit.
