Two timing orders in Kinder v. Geithner

The Eighth Circuit has issued two orders, yesterday and today, affecting the timing of Kinder v. Geithner.

First, yesterday, the court issued this order: "Appellants’ motion for extension of time to file the reply brief is granted. Appellants may have until August 30, 2011 to file the brief."

Second, the court this morning has issued this order concerning oral argument: "Appellants’ motion to expedite the oral argument is granted in part, and the clerk is directed to set the case for oral argument during the week of October 17 – 21, 2011 in St. Paul, Minnesota. Counsel will be notified of the exact date and time of the oral argument when the clerk publishes the October, 2011 calendar. The motion to expand the time for oral argument is denied as moot, as the clerk has screened the case for 30 minutes of oral argument per side."

On to the Twin Cities!
