United States gets extension in Baldwin v. Sebelius

The federal government's brief as appellee in Baldwin v. Sebelius was originally due today at the Ninth Circuit. But in looking for that brief on PACER, I found this order:

The court vacates its December 1, 2010 order as issued in error. This is a preliminary injunction appeal. Appellees’ unopposed motion for a 35-day extension of time in which to file an answering brief is granted. The answering brief is now due January 26, 2011.

Thus, we will not have a brief from the United States in Baldwin for another month.
