Peter Blumberg of The Daily Journal is reporting: On Friday, he had two articles of note. The first, headlined “Litigator’s Banishment Was Going Too Far, Circuit Rules,” reports on this ruling that the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit issued on Thursday. Blumberg’s article begins, “A federal appeals panel Thursday saved a nationally prominent civil defense specialist from becoming the first lawyer permanently barred from making pro hac vice appearances in a federal district court.” It’s far from clear to me that the lawyer for Ford Motor Company should have been subject to sanctions for the conduct described in the opinion.

Blumberg’s second article, headlined “Couple Who Fear Daughter’s Mutilation Will Get Rehearing,” reports on the Ninth Circuit’s grant of rehearing en banc Thursday in a case that produced this divided three-judge panel opinion. In other coverage, The Metropolitan News-Enterprise reported yesterday that “Couple Claiming Fear of Daughter’s Mutilation Gain En Banc Review of Ruling Denying Asylum Claim.”

“Man facing 26 years for lying wins hearing”: Reuters reports here that “A California man sent to prison for 26 years for lying on a driver’s license application has won a new hearing in a case that revived debate over the state’s ‘three strikes’ law, which imposes lengthy terms on repeat offenders.”

And in today’s edition of The San Francisco Chronicle, Bob Egelko has an article headlined “Second chance in ‘3 strikes’ case; Judges grant hearing to man who took cousin’s license exam.”

I first noted yesterday’s ruling of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in a post you can access here.
