When the docketing statement is filed, the Court needs to wait for the record proper before it will refer the case to its prehearing division to make a calendaring recommendation. Some districts send the record proper to the Court of Appeals within a week and other districts take several weeks to a couple of months. Then, the staff attorneys in the prehearing division will usually take two weeks, but sometimes (in a very unusual case) as long as six weeks, to make a calendaring recommendation, and the calendaring judge will decide whether to accept that recommendation within a few days. Two months is probably the average time it takes to calendar a case after the filing of the docketing statement.
