A practical manual on handling federal appellate matters, especially civil appeals and and cases involving review of federal administrative agencies. Federal Appellate Practice discusses applicable provisions of the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure, jurisdictional and procedural statutes, practice tips and techniques, important case rulings, and unusual local circuit rules and internal operating procedures. The Second Edition addresses significant amendments to both the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure and the local rules of various circuits. Additionally, it incorporates an enormous volume of opinions since the first edition was released, many of which speak to topics discussed in virtually every chapter. It also updates the state of the law and captures many of the comments made in appellate decisions, including in unpublished orders, reflecting the views of particular circuits or judges about what works, and what does not, in handling appeals. This valuable resource goes deeper than purely legal treatises that only collect cases and discuss the holding. This treatise draws upon the experience of more than a dozen partners and counsel in Mayer Brown s Supreme Court and Appellate Practice Group to provide commentary on the most effective ways to handle each step of the process, explaining pitfalls, techniques, and opportunities that may not be apparent from merely reading technical rules. The Second Edition explores new and expanded topics, including: Necessary steps in the district court to preserve issues for appeal Problems of appealability and solutions Mechanics of preparing the record and appendix Motion practice before the court of appeals Availability of extraordinary writs Particular strategies for opening, responsive and reply briefs Role and structure of amicus curiae briefs Preparing and delivering oral arguments Seeking or opposing costs and attorney s fees Seeking rehearing Considering Supreme Court review Principles and the most modern techniques for effective appellate brief writing The Second Edition also covers special issues involving review of administrative agency decisions, criminal appeals and practice before the Federal Circuit.
