Ind. Decisions - More on: 7th Circuit practitioners, beware!
A reader writes about yesterday's ILB entry re what awaits 7th Circuit lawyers who fail to submit a correct jurisdictional statement:
Marcia, thanks for the link to the Mazda/Smoot decision which is a scary warning to all federal appellate practitioners. Also scary is the 20 minute audio of the oral argument, in which Judges Posner and Easterbrook flay both counsel like they were pulling the wings off of a fly. Anyone who has been in the Seventh Circuit at any frequency has witnessed this process. And I have a case which will be set for argument shortly. I used to enjoy those trips to Chicago......
