Alex Herbage, Appellant, v. Edwin A. Meese, Iii, et al, 946 F.2d 1564 (D.C. Cir. 1991)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit - 946 F.2d 1564 (D.C. Cir. 1991) Sept. 3, 1991

Before BUCKLEY, SENTELLE and HENDERSON, Circuit Judges.



Upon consideration of the Federal and British appellees' motions for summary affirmance and the response thereto, it is

ORDERED that the motions for summary affirmance be granted substantially for the reasons stated by the district court in its opinion filed September 20, 1990. See Herbage v. Meese, 747 F. Supp. 60 (D.D.C. 1990). The merits of the parties' positions are so clear as to justify summary action. See Taxpayers Watchdog, Inc. v. Stanley, 819 F.2d 294, 297 (D.C. Cir. 1987) (per curiam); Walker v. Washington, 627 F.2d 541, 545 (D.C. Cir.) (per curiam), cert. denied, 449 U.S. 994 (1980).

The Clerk is directed to withhold issuance of the mandate herein until seven days after disposition of any timely petition for rehearing. See D.C. Cir. Rule 15.
