In First, 4th Circuit to Livestream Travel Ban Hearing


Lawyers who cheered the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit’s live broadcast of oral arguments in President Donald Trump’s first travel ban case now have another show to look forward to after the Fourth Circuit said it will live livestream oral arguments in its case next month.

In an order issued Wednesday, the court granted a request from CSPAN to broadcast the audio, acknowledging “heightened public interest” in the case. The Fourth Circuit will skip the usual three-judge panel and hear the case en banc.

Amul Thapar, currently a judge on the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Kentucky, was nominated to fill a spot on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit.

Gorsuch's 'Burping Boy' Dissent Arrives at the Supreme Court

Justice Neil Gorsuch may face his first recusal when the justices in May take up a petition that involves—and features prominently—one of his most famous dissents: the case of the burping 13-year-old student.

Gorsuch, formerly a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit, in July wrote a dissent in A.M. v. Holmes. His colleagues in that case voted in support of immunity over the arrest of a student in New Mexico for allegedly disrupting a physical education class.

Federal Circuit Rejects 5th Amendment Plea in Driverless Car Feud

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit has dissolved its stay of discovery in the Google-Uber autonomous car intellectual property case.

A three-judge panel ruled that U.S. District Judge William Alsup of the Northern District of California did not err by rejecting Uber Technologies Inc.'s and Anthony Levandowski's request to assert his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination.
