No decision yet, as far as I know. He got oral argument, which isn't a good sign.Notorial Dissent wrote:Has anything been posted about Class' last round of lawsuits/appeals? Were they dismissed as frivolous, as they should have been, or are they still just sitting there? it seems to have been awfully quiet from that quarter of late.
I can sit down and read the briefs, if anybody wants me to. I need to get around to learning how precisely counsel intends to vault the waiver of appellate rights.
ETA: The oral argument is here: https://www.cadc.uscourts.gov/recording ... 5-3015.mp3
ETA PT 2: I haven't read the plea agreement, but per the amicus brief, it made a possible mistake I've seen elsewhere: it set forth that Class waived his right to appeal his *sentence*, but not his conviction. My defense-leaning side says that his appeal can indeed be possible, although I usually see this in the context of collateral attacks and not direct appeals. In any event, that's how he proposes to vault the appellate waiver. (I know of at least one other USAO that has similar defective language in its stock plea agreement despite it being shot down on numerous occasions.)
