The court set oral argument for the week of June 29, and told both sides to have written briefs filed before then by the Clinton administration and independent counsel Kenneth Starr.

The order Friday by the appeals court comes a day after the Supreme Court refused to make an emergency intervention and resolve the dispute. The justices, however, urged the appeals court to move "expeditiously."

The appeals court arguments will be held the same week that Starr asked the Supreme Court to hear arguments on an emergency basis.
