All Other  04/24/2013  Defendant Justin Chase filed his motion to remand to the grand jury on January 9, 2013. The grand jury minutes were filed on November 13, 2012. In the absence of any timely motion to extend the time in the record before us, it appears Chase filed his motion to remand outside the twenty-five day time limit provided by Rule 12.9(b), Ariz. R. Crim. P. See Maule v. Superior Court, 142 Ariz. 512, 515, 690 P.2d 813, 816 (App. 1984) (holding “the rule is not ‘jurisdictional,’ in the sense that a trial court has no authority to grant a request for extension; however, the rule is ‘mandatory,’ in the sense that the trial court has no authority to grant an extension that is not made on a timely basis”). Therefore, it is ORDERED: The parties shall file by May 1, 2013, memoranda of no more than five pages addressing whether the trial court’s order remanding the matter to the grand jury must be reversed in light of Chase’s apparent failure to timely file his motion, apart from the issues raised in relation to the Arizona Medical Marijuana Act and whether the untimeliness impacts this court’s special action jurisdiction. FURTHER ORDERED: The parties should remain ready to proceed to oral argument on May 8, 2013 until further order of the court.
