How Appealing


Friday, May 26, 2006

At 8:45 a.m. this morning, the U.S. Senate will begin post-cloture consideration of the nomination of Brett M. Kavanaugh to serve on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit: An up-or-down vote to confirm is expected today, although as Ed Whelan notes in this post at National Review Online's "Bench Memos" blog, "Senate rules would allow 30 hours of post-cloture debate." C-SPAN2 (RealPlayer required) will, as usual, provide live coverage of today's Senate proceedings.

"Judge Becker's Last Criminal Law Opinions -- An Appreciation": Attorney Peter Goldberger has this interesting guest post at the "Third Circuit Blog."

Peter's post concludes, "When Judge Becker presided at oral argument, the red light meant nothing. Argument continued until all questions had been explored thoroughly. It always seemed like he had all the time in the world to try and 'get it right.' Alas, he did not have as much time as we would have wanted him to have, for our own sakes -- many more years of dispensing justice with an even hand, a keen intellect, and a kind heart."

In Cobb County, Georgia evolution sticker case, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit remands the case for new evidentiary proceedings and new findings based on the evidence then introduced into the record: Circuit Judge Ed Carnes wrote today's opinion on behalf of a unanimous three-judge panel.

As the introduction to today's opinion explains, "Whether we should reverse or affirm the judgment depends on the evidence that was before the district court, and we cannot tell from the record what that evidence was. Everyone agrees that some evidence presented to the district court has been omitted from the record on appeal, but the attorneys have not been able to identify what was omitted. The problems presented by a record containing significant evidentiary gaps are compounded because at least some key findings of the district court are not supported by the evidence that is contained in the record. We have concluded that the unfilled gaps in the record, coupled with the problematic nature of some of the district court's factfindings, prevent proper appellate review of the merits of the important constitutional issues raised in this case."

The stickers in question, affixed by the defendant school district and board of education inside the front cover of some science textbooks used in the public schools of the county, stated: "This textbook contains material on evolution. Evolution is a theory, not a fact, regarding the origin of living things. This material should be approached with an open mind, studied carefully, and critically considered."

Additional thoughts on dead judges voting: On the ConLawProfs email list, both Marty Lederman and Law Professor Edward A. Hartnett have exchanged lengthy emails on this subject this morning. I have reproduced those emails here and here, respectively, at "How Appealing Extra." My earlier posts on this subject can be accessed here and here.

At the risk of overly simplifying matters, Marty notes in his email of this morning that 28 U.S.C. sec. 46 authorizes the "hearing and determination of cases and controversies by separate panels, each consisting of three judges." Marty further notes that the U.S. Supreme Court, in United States v. American-Foreign Steamship Corp., 363 U.S. 685 (1960), held that "A case or controversy is 'determined' when it is decided."

Marty goes on to reason, however, that an appeal is necessarily determined/decided in advance of the date on which an opinion is filed by the Clerk of a federal appellate court, especially in the Third Circuit, where the internal operating procedures require that any precedential opinion be circulated to all active judges before filing. Thus, Marty does not believe that a judge whose vote is dispositive in the outcome of an appeal must remain alive until the date on which the opinion and judgment of the appellate court are filed in order for the judge's vote to count.

I continue to disagree with Marty, and I note that in American-Foreign Steamship the U.S. Supreme Court held that "A case or controversy is 'determined' when it is decided." A large number of federal appellate courts state on the face of their precedential opinions that the date on which the opinion issued is the date on which the case was decided. (See, for example, recent opinions from the D.C. Circuit, the Second Circuit, the Fourth Circuit, the Seventh Circuit, and the Federal Circuit.) This persuasively indicates that the date on which a federal appellate court's decision is filed, and judgment is entered on the federal appellate court's docket, is synonymous with the date on which the case is decided. Moreover, as a matter of common sense, an appeal is not in fact "decided" until the court before which the appeal is pending has issued its decision.

For these reasons, I remain of the view that in order for a federal judge to provide the dispositive vote in support of a federal appellate court's judgment, he or she must be among the living on the date that the judgment is entered on the docket.

Also agreeing with me is Law Professor Stephen I. Vladeck, who emails:

Thanks for taking the blog mantle on such an interesting issue. Marty and I have been exchanging e-mails, and the only thing I'd add to what's already more than deftly covered in your posts so far is the role, if any, of 28 U.S.C. [sec.] 46, including 46(b), which requires that Courts of Appeals (save for the Federal Circuit) sit as three-judge panels, and 46(d), which allows two judges to serve as a quorum (back to the "Circuit Justice Roberts" flap...). Usually, when the two remaining judges agree, 46(d) becomes the basis on which they decide a case involving a deceased (or elevated) jurist, e.g., when Judge Fred Parker passed away last year. See United States v. Allied Stevedoring Co., 241 F.2d 925, 927 (2d Cir. 1957) (L. Hand, J.). There's no suggestion that the missing judge's vote "counts"; rather, all of the cases (except this one) are of the mind that the quorum provision is what saves the day.

If we assume that there comes a point after which missing judges can no longer vote, I still don't think there is a serious argument that the vote of a missing judge invalidates the decision, thanks to 46(d) (but see Nguyen v. United States, 539 U.S. 69 (2003), holding that the presence of a non-Article III judge voids the decisions of a Ninth Circuit panel notwithstanding the presence of a quorum). But it does seem to me that, since case law seems to be clear that it is the date of filing the opinion on which the opinion becomes "law," there's a serious question as to the precedential value of an opinion such as Petruska, which, in my view, should really be seen as an affirmance by an equally divided court

Thanks to all who have emailed to share their views on this interesting topic.
