Once briefs have been entered and accepted by appeallete court,

Resolved Question:

Once briefs have been entered and accepted by appeallete court, is there a specific timing for them to assign a court date? and does that differ if the attorney has requested "oral argument"? Thank you_

It always depends on the load of the docket. It will be scheduled as soon as reasonably possible. If it is an oral argument, that is a separate calendar. Therefore, it may or may not be sooner as, again, it depends on when it can be placed on the Court's docket


Once a date is established a Notice of Hearing will be mailed out to the parties.

so that explains how so many individuals have been postponed by the appellate courts as much as two years? ! Is there any way for an individual or attorney on the case to inquire about status or time frame of an existing appeal?

Sure. You can review the "docket entries" in the clerk's office to see what has been filed and if a hearing has been set and you can ask the clerk how back logged they are on getting cases to court.
