§2-2-2. When acts to be done fall on Saturday, Sunday or legal
holiday; adjournments from day to day.
(a) When a proceeding is directed to take place or any act to
be done on any particular day of the month or within any period of
time prescribed or allowed, including those provided by article
two, chapter fifty-five, of this code, if that day or the last day
falls on a Saturday, Sunday, legal holiday, or a weather or other
emergency day, the next day that is not a Saturday, Sunday, legal
holiday, or a weather or other emergency day shall be deemed to be
the one intended, and when the day upon which a term of court is
directed by law to commence, falls on a Saturday, Sunday, legal
holiday, or a weather or other emergency day, the following day
that is not a Saturday, Sunday, legal holiday, or a weather or
other emergency day shall be deemed to be the day intended. When
an adjournment is authorized from day to day, an adjournment from
Friday to Monday will be legal.
(b)(1) For purposes of this section, "weather or other
emergency day" means a day designated for a county in accordance
with the provisions of subdivision (2) of this subsection as a day
upon which weather or other emergency conditions in that county
prevent the general transaction of court business in that county.
(2) A weather or other emergency day is designated by order of
the chief justice of the supreme court of appeals or by order of
the chief judge of the circuit court of the county in which the
proceeding is directed to take place or in which the act is to be done.
