"Because the [Criminal Justice Act] provides its own remedial scheme, Marcum cannot collaterally attack the Fifth Circuit's determination of Marcum's fee awards under the Tucker Act." So holds a unanimous three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in a ruling issued today.

Circuit Judge Patricia A. Millett wrote today's ruling on behalf of a unanimous three-judge panel.

Update: In early news coverage, The Hill reports that "Facebook wins case over anti-Jewish page."
