M. Miller Baker was quoted in the May 2 issue of Roll Call in an article entitled "Full Circuit to Hear CAA Cases Jointly." The article discusses a surprise move that could lay the groundwork for review by the Supreme Court. The federal appeals court, which is now hearing two lawsuits against Members of Congress has decided to hear both cases together in front of the entire circuit, rather than in separate hearings. Mr. Baker said in regard to the Supreme Court hearing the two lawsuits together that "it's highly, highly unusual. Put another way, it's extraordinary." He continued to say that perhaps the last time a full circuit court took a case "as an original matter" was in Bush v. Gore in 2000, when the full 11th Circuit decided to hear the lawsuit directly from the trial court.
