This thread is a continuation of the very long original. Please proceed as before.
Well, I don't know where Sun is, but I can say that I checked the docket today, and all remains quiet.
Going forward I ask that you keep the discussion on topic in this thread. While we do understand that some threads to tend to veer OT from time to time, in this thread it is especially important that the discussion remain on topic so members do not have to sift through a large amount of unrelated posts to follow the discussion. I will be keeping a fairly tight lid on this thread and will remove posts that do not further the discussion of this case. PM me with any questions if need be.
Sun V. is currently on vacation and Elendil is standing in for him. Court updates will be posted to the new thread for that purpose.
Rather than delete OT posts from the SE vs. FDA thread, I will simply move them here: http://www.e-cigarette-forum.com/fo...38-se-vs-fda-overflow-thread.html#post1383688 so any OT discussion can continue without interrupting the flow of the primary discussion thread.
To clarify, we will not be issuing infractions for OT posts,(unless a gross violation of forum rules) just moving them to the other thread I created...........It is likely I will be just looking at this every couple of days and doing a bit of "clean up". I didn't mean to scare anyone with my "tight lid" comment, we would just like the thread to remain as much on track as reasonably possible............
Any post deemed at OT will not be deleted, just moved so there will remain a transparency to all interested parties in this thread.
Have at it.............
I'll be checking the docket every day while Sun is on vacation . . . while I feel kind of silly posting, "Nothing happened today," I'll probably do that just so people feel confident that the docket is indeed being checked.
I'll probably check between 4:30 and 6:30 my time every day. (I'm in the midwest, so I'm an hour behind D.C., so that means checking the docket at between 5:30 and 7:30 Eastern Time.)
When something happens, it will be posted here, then a moderator will copy the update onto the docket update thread.
Nothing on the docket today.
Thanks for watching this for us, Julie!
Yes..thanks for keeping up on things, Julie.
Y'all are more than welcome. Truthfully, I'm guessing we won't see much excitement in the docket until next week.
No movement on the docket today.
Once the briefs are filed will they be available to the public?
Yup. The briefs will be posted as soon as we get our hot, sweaty hands on them.
In March, it was suggested that- as people with a stake in the outcome of this decision- we write letters to the appeals court justices. I thought I'd bring the idea back up again.
I haven't received any acknowledgment of my letter, so i don't know whether or not there may be a better address. Here's the address that I used:
The Honorable Justices Ginsburg, Henderson and Rogers
U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. District
Constitution Avenue, N.W.
Washington DC, 20001
I wrote the court when it was first suggested. I have not received a response either, nor do I expect one. I truly hope that there is a landslide of letters to the court and I hope they get it that this case is important to us. And I hope that they infer that the case is important to the rest of America as well, for it foreshadows Americas future in terms of our continuing freedoms or the drastic curtailing of that freedom for the future.
Why are all the ECF forum members not writting mass letters to the court, I feel the forum Mods should put together something or someone should to help this case out, with all the members I would think we could hit them with a mass of e-mail and letters on a daily basis for this cause and believe it would help not hurt, if we have to battle them in there own ring using there politics I dont feel we have the upper edge one bit, a mass rally and mass communication would really help us all, just my opinion. I wrote a huge thread on this but didnt get much reply???
There was a list of email addresses and a letter to copy.
I hit them all and got the instant "Thank You, we'll reply" auto responder.
Never heard a thing from any of them. I'm out of states effected so far, but they don't know that. They may have the title set to "go to spam".
Might want to change the Subject lines around some.
Just a thought for anyone emailing.
No movement on the docket today.
1. No movement on the docket.
2. Shoot me now, but I agree with Roly.
Have I mentioned how much I'm enjoying the new smileys?
