You mean the DC Circuit wasn't convinced by Bork's argument? I thought Bork was a good lawyer. I thought all the amici were good lawyers. Update: it appears that according to this order, found on PACER, the DC Circuit didn't let him file a brief. Now I will have to revisit that, because, I would imagine that good lawyers would have been granted permission. Also worth noting is that Dow Jones scored a partial victory in unsealing stuff last week.
The professors were: Vikram Amar, Randy E. Barnett, Robert H. Bork, Alan M. Dershowitz, Viet D. Dinh, Douglas W. Kmiec, Gary S. Lawson, Earl M. Maltz, Thomas W. Merrill, Robert F. Nagel, Richard D. Parker, and Robert J. Pushaw.
Update: Find the order here.
Does this mean that the president has plans to commute the sentences of everyone sentenced based on evidence that was not presented to the jury? (As SL&P also notes).
