How Appealing

Monday, March 11, 2019

Programming note: On Tuesday, appeals in two separate cases on which I am working will be argued in Philadelphia before a three-judge panel of the Superior Court of Pennsylvania. As a result, additional posts likely will not appear here until Tuesday evening.

As always while I am traveling, additional appellate-related retweets are likely to appear on this blog’s Twitter feed.
