The D.C. Circuit hasn’t published an opinion on its website since August 24, 2007. Blawgletter can’t figure out why.
The court didn’t exactly set a decision-issuing record before it went radio-silent more than two weeks ago. In the entire month of August, D.C. Circuit panels wrote only 10 opinions. Last year, twice that many came out during the same almost-end-of-summer month. And in July 2007 more than 30 issued.
We would guess either that Their Honors got their rulings out early or that we’ll see a torrent as the end of the September 30 six-month judicial reporting period approaches.
