  1. Gary: Technically, the government’s notice of appeal, filed in the Middle District of Florida, is the “appeal.” So the appeal is filed. The tweet is wrong.

    The next step, after the notice of appeal, is the establishment of a docket (or schedule) by the Eleventh Circuit, which will lay out the deadlines that the parties have to meet for entering their appearances, filing briefs etc.

    I haven’t checked on the status of the case (if any) in the Eleventh Circuit, but the appeal was most assuredly “filed.” I have no idea what this tweet means.

  2. For the one person on earth who cares, the Eleventh Circuit’s docket in the appeal of the Florida mask case says, “The appellant’s brief is due on or before 05/31/2022.” So really, Gary, you need a more trustworthy source for legal news. Your Reuters reporter, in my opinion, shouldn’t be relied upon anymore.

  3. @Tom – you’re missing the point, if they actually cared they’d have filed the appeal before the expiration of the mandate mooted the question
