"Whether a defendant may remove a case a second time based on diversity jurisdiction more than one year after the commencement of the case?" Some readers may recall that on January 24, 2014 the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit issued an order granting my clients' petition for permission to appeal presenting that issue.

Today, on behalf of my clients, the plaintiffs in the case, I filed the opening Brief for Appellants.

And for any readers who simply can't get enough when it comes to appeals involving the law school subjects of federal courts and civil procedure, today the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit issued a decision resolving "whether the federal court in Guam has jurisdiction in disputes exclusively between aliens."

And at her "Trial Insider" blog, Pamela A. MacLean has a post titled "Convicted Killer's Civil Rights Suit Reinstated."

Circuit Judge Stephen Reinhardt wrote today's ruling on behalf of a unanimous three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.
