All of the above: Question one in columnist William Safire's "The Office Pool, 2007" asks:
1. The "O'Connorless Supreme Court" will decide

(a) without reversing Roe v. Wade to uphold laws restricting late-term abortion because they do not impose an "undue burden" on women

(b) that public schools in Seattle and Louisville, in their zeal to prevent re-segregation, have gone too far in using race in selection of students

(c) to reject Massachusetts' case to force the Environmental Protection Agency to raise auto emissions standards, holding that "global warming" gives the state no standing to sue without new law

And Safire's own quite plausible prediction in response to this question is "All."

"Appellate Justices Hopping Mad Over Superior Court Judge's 'Kangaroo Court' Reference": law.com provides this report, in which the trial judge who made reference to "the kangaroos up there in kangaroo court" explains that he wasn't referring to the California Court of Appeal. Indeed, according to the trial judge, he wasn't even referring to a court at all, but rather to the district attorney's office's "strike team." The article closes: "'They wasted a lot of pages,' [the trial judge] said. 'If they wanted to know what I meant, they should've asked me.'"

Chief Judge Easterbrook versus Circuit Judge Posner, once again: For the second time in the past eight days, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit has issued a ruling in which the Chief Judge Frank H. Easterbrook wrote the majority opinion from which Circuit Judge Richard A. Posner dissented.

In today's decision, a pro se prisoner whose claim of sexual abuse at the hands of a prison guard survived summary judgment but then was rejected by a jury at trial argues on appeal that the federal district judge abused his discretion in denying the prisoner's request for the recruitment of counsel pursuant to 28 U.S.C. sec. 1915(e)(1). The majority holds that the trial court's decision did not constitute an abuse of discretion and that a trial court's plausible decision whether to recruit counsel for a pro se litigant would never be subject to reversal. Judge Posner dissents, holding that while many pro se litigants are quite capable of representing themselves at trial, it should have been obvious to the trial judge that this pro se prisoner was unlikely to be one such minimally competent pro se litigant at trial.

Unlike in connection with last week's case, when I concluded that Judge Posner's dissent offered a much more convincing argument than Chief Judge Easterbrook's majority opinion, today's ruling presents a much closer call. It's easy to feel sympathetic toward the prisoner, who plainly was unable to equal counsel for the defendants in the quality of his presentation. But, at the same time, the majority opinion makes a very strong case for why a trial judge's reasoned exercise of discretion in advance of trial concerning whether to recruit counsel should not be second-guessed with the benefit of hindsight.

Not an auspicious day to be a rescuer on the Pennsylvania Turnpike: Demonstrating the accuracy of the saying "No good deed goes unpunished," today the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit issued a decision that involves some rather unfortunate facts. On the evening of May 12, 2002 in a heavy rain, a man traveling on the Pennsylvania Turnpike with his wife and children noticed that another car had just overturned off the right side of the highway. The man and his wife were both trained and certified in first aid by the Red Cross, so they pulled their car to the shoulder of the highway and went to assist the occupants of the overturned vehicle. Fortunately, both passengers in the overturned vehicle appeared unharmed and were able to remove themselves from their vehicle.

The male rescuer stood outside his vehicle while awaiting the arrival of the police. Before the police arrived, a third vehicle lost control, swerved, and hydroplaned into the rescuers' parked vehicle, killing the male rescuer. Thereafter, his widow sued the passengers of the overturned vehicle, alleging that their negligence in causing the first accident, which prompted the rescuers to respond, placed the male rescuer in the way of harm that ultimately led to his death.

Although the story is quite tragic, the rescuer's widow received somewhat happy news today, in that a unanimous Third Circuit panel has reversed the grant of summary judgment that had dismissed the widow's lawsuit against the passengers of the overturned vehicle.

Imagine that -- appellate judges don't take kindly to trial judge's characterization of appellate court as "kangaroo court": Coming hard on the heels of my posting this morning of the petition for writ of certiorari in Fieger v. Michigan Grievance Administrator -- a case asking whether an attorney has a First Amendment right to publicly express non-defamatory personal criticism of a judge -- is this gem of an opinion from California's Court of Appeal for the Third Appellate District.

According to that decision issued today, the trial judge on the record stated to counsel in open court, "You can't offend the kangaroos up there in kangaroo court." Although the Court of Appeal could have brushed off the insult by declaring that the trial judge must have been referring to the Supreme Court of California, instead the appellate judges decided that the trial judge must have been referring to their intermediate appellate court.

What's a federal appellate court to do when the U.S. Supreme Court grants a petition for writ of certiorari in a case in which a timely-filed petition for rehearing en banc remains pending before the federal appellate court? Today, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit issued an order denying the petition for rehearing en banc filed in Brewer v. Quarterman.

What makes that otherwise mundane action noteworthy is that the U.S. Supreme Court, on October 13, 2006, granted Brewer's petition for writ of certiorari and agreed to hear and decide that case on the merits. The questions presented can be accessed here, while the Supreme Court's docket entries can be viewed at this link.

The Supreme Court's grant of certiorari appears to have led eight of the Fifth Circuit's fifteen current active judges to abstain from voting on the petition for rehearing en banc. Today's order, entered by Circuit Judge Jerry E. Smith, states that "[t]his order is entered, and the court voted to deny rehearing en banc, solely to resolve any potential question of the judgment's finality in this court and to clarify the Supreme Court's jurisdiction over the case."

Circuit Judge James L. Dennis, listed as one of the eight active judges who refrained from voting on the petition for rehearing en banc, issued a five-page dissent "from the attempt to exercise jurisdiction" in which he writes: "In its haste to attempt to ensure that the Supreme Court keeps the case and reaches the merits, however, the minority of this court's judges attempting to exercise jurisdiction herein have ignored well-established limits on this court's jurisdiction and, in the process, trespassed upon the jurisdiction of the Supreme Court."

Both the order denying rehearing en banc and Judge Dennis's dissent from the attempt to exercise jurisdiction mention the en banc Fifth Circuit's ruling earlier this month in Nelson v. Quarterman, in which the en banc court by a vote of 9-7 overturned a Texas state court death sentence on a finding of a Penry violation. Some of the seven dissenters in Nelson are among the eight who refrained from voting on today's order denying rehearing en banc, so perhaps today's order ought not be viewed as a raw power-play by the dissenters in Nelson who may hope their views will receive a more sympathetic audience from the nine Justices upstairs.

It is interesting to note that, according to the U.S. Supreme Court's docket, Brewer himself on December 14, 2006 filed a motion in the Supreme Court asking that his case be remanded to the Fifth Circuit for reconsideration in light of that federal appellate court's recent en banc ruling in Nelson. That motion is scheduled to be considered at the Supreme Court's conference of January 5, 2007, while the case itself is currently scheduled to be argued on the merits in the Supreme Court on January 17th.

"This appeal raises the issue of whether a person arrested in American Samoa for allegedly committing federal crimes in American Samoa may be tried and convicted in the United States District Court for the District of Hawaii." So begins an opinion that the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit issued today.

The question arises because, although the U.S. Congress made federal criminal law applicable to American Samoa, Congress did not create federal district courts for that territory. As a result, federal criminal charges must be tried someplace else that has a federal district court, and because Hawaii was the federal judicial district to which the defendant/appellant in today's case was "first brought," the Ninth Circuit rejects the defendant's challenge to his conviction.
