The Papua New Guinea opposition is hoping the courts will force parliament to allow its motion of no confidence in the government of Peter O'Neill.
There had been expectations the motion would be moved this week for what would have been the fourth time the opposition has tried to remove Mr O'Neill.
All the previous motions have been declared illegal by the Speaker or his deputy, who have raised queries about the validity of signatures on the documents.
This week, the ruling People's National Congress Party asked the courts to make a ruling on the latest attempt to bring the motion.
That ruling is due later today and an opposition spokesperson says they hope it will allow them to hold the vote.
There have been weeks of unease in PNG, led by students protesting over Mr O'Neill's refusal to stand down to face fraud allegations.
