Appeal and Certiorari ) Rehearing
When an appellate court has ruled on those issues necessary to decide the appeal before it and it has neither overlooked nor misapprehended any points of law or fact, it may summarily deny a petition for rehearing. Nahnken of Nett v. Pohnpei, 7 FSM Intrm. 554, 554-55 (App. 1996).

The appellant timely filed a petition for rehearing on July 2, 1996. The petitioner's lengthy arguments largely mischaracterize our holding. The appellant's arguments repeat those he has made before, and which we previously considered carefully. A rehearing is unnecessary. We have neither overlooked nor misapprehended any points of law or fact. See FSM App. R. 40(a). We ruled on
those issues necessary to decide the appeal before us. We may therefore summarily deny the appellant's petition for rehearing. Nena v. Kosrae (II), 6 FSM Intrm. 437, 438 (App. 1994).
