Sixth Circuit orders a response from appellants

The Sixth Circuit has asked the plaintiff-appellants in Thomas More Law Center v. Obama to respond in writing by 9:00 a.m. Tuesday morning to the United States's motion to dismiss the appeal as moot. A bit of an intrusion on the Thomas More Law Center's lawyers' three-day weekend, no doubt. But one suspects the Sixth Circuit panel might be a bit miffed about learning only yesterday (six days before oral argument) that Ms. DeMars has health insurance, though she has had the coverage for the past seven months.
