A motion for reconsideration of an order denying or granting class certification, if filed more than ten days after the issuance of that order, does not extend the time for seeking interlocutory appellate review of the order: A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit issued this ruling today.

"Court overturns government's ruling against Rambus": The Associated Press provides a report that begins, "An appeals court on Tuesday overruled a decision by the Federal Trade Commission that Rambus Inc. violated antitrust law, sending the computer-chip designer's shares up almost 4 percent."

You can access today's ruling of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit at this link.

The Associated Press is reporting: Mark Sherman reports that "Supreme Court reviews 'millionaire's amendment.'" The U.S. Supreme Court has posted online at this link the transcript of today's oral argument in Davis v. Federal Election Comm’n, No. 07-320.

And Pete Yost reports that "Justices question use of dead woman's statements at trial." The U.S. Supreme Court has posted online at this link the transcript of today's oral argument in Giles v. California, No. 07-6053.

Better late than never? A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit today issued an order that states, in full:
The Government's unopposed motion to amend the opinion is GRANTED. The opinion published at 451 F.3d 578 (9th Cir. 2006) is amended to delete all mentions of the name "Keith Vercauteren." Accordingly, the phrase "In September 2003, Assistant United States Attorney Keith Vercauteren ("AUSA Vercauteren") . . . " shall be amended to read, "In September 2003, an Assistant United States Attorney ("the AUSA") . . . " All subsequent references to "AUSA Vercauteren" shall be amended to read, "the AUSA."
As that order reveals, the opinion being amended today issued in 2006 (June 26, 2006, to be precise), and therefore presumably thousands of bound versions of the Federal Reporter (Third Series) permanently contain (and will continue to contain, despite today's order) Keith Vercauteren's name. Until today, however, his name had not previously appeared here at "How Appealing."

The Associated Press provides a report that begins, "Former EPA chief Christine Todd Whitman cannot be held liable for telling residents near the World Trade Center site that the air was safe to breathe after the 2001 terrorist attacks, a federal appeals court said Tuesday."

And at the blog "Wait A Second!" Stephen Bergstein has a post titled "9/11 health claim against Whitman fails."

"Laptops fair game for airport customs searches": Today in The San Francisco Chronicle, Bob Egelko has an article that begins, "Customs agents at U.S. airports don't need any evidence of wrongdoing to search the contents of passengers' laptop computers, a federal appeals court ruled Monday. Reinstating child pornography evidence against a passenger at Los Angeles International Airport, the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco said a computer is no different from a suitcase, a car or any other piece of property subject to search at an international border."

And law.com reports that "9th Circuit OKs Border Guards' Search of Traveler's Laptop."
